Hello everyone here is the deal I have been having problems with my desktop computer dropping my wireless signal it does it at least 30 times a day! It is starting to drive me crazy!!! :)

Here is what I have. The desktop is a Dell deminsion 2350, I have installed a Trendnet wireless PCI card in it, the router is a Motorola 2 wire wireless router.

When the computer logs on it has 48mbps, then it goes down to 22, 18, 11, 5, and 1 then it kicks me off, then it will log back on again and start the process all over. This whole thing takes about 10 minutes from the first log on to the time it logs on again. Why am I losing mbps and not signal? The little signal indicator show full signal it say's Signal strenght Excellent to very good.

How do I increase my signal or what do I need to do to get this thing working right?

can you do the following when its working and then repeat all the tests when it disconnects
make sure we know whichis which


{ipconfig /all}
We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all

-> Start > run {search bar in Vista} > cmd > ipconfig /all
post back the results here


TWO Methods to do that - if you cannot access the internet with PC, then use method 2 to copy onto a
machine that can access the internet and post results here

Method ONE -------------------------------------------------------------
start > run {search bar in Vista} > cmd > ipconfig /all

rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

Method TWO -------------------------------------------------------------

Start> Run {search bar in Vista}> CMD to open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

{Ping Tests}
Start> Run {search bar in Vista}> CMD to open a DOS window and type:

Ping {The IP addrss you got in the ipconfig information you got when it was connected OK }
post back the results

Ping google.com
Post back the results

rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

Ping 209.191.93.53
post back results

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

an you ping the default gateway 192.168.0.1

Dont bother with this ping PING 192.168.0.66

so now when it disconnects we just need to see all the tests as follows

ipconfig /all
PING 192.168.0.1
PING GOOGLE.COM
PING 209.191.93.53

Hey etaf thanks for the reply I have been waiting for it to disconnect for 4 days now and it it just wont do it now since I posted all of the pinging you asked me to do, it slows down still but wont disconect? I don't know what is worse, the disconect or the slow internet. I think maybe something else is wrong. Do you have anymore suggestions or is there anything else i need to do if it wont disconect to do the other ping test?

As its wireless it could have been interferance - I would only suggest 1) remove any wireless secruity and see if that helps 2) Change channels use ch 1 or 6 or 11

but we really need to see the pings and ipconfig /all when it disconnects

the other suggestion would be to connect with a cable and see if that fixes it , thats was when it was 30 times a day and not too much of a problem just for a few hours
