I have a DLink router and DLink PCMCIA card. The card is in an old acer travelmate 600ter w/Windows 2000 and Firefox. I just put 512 MB ram in it and it has great internet performance when direct connected to the router. However, when trying to use it wirelessly, it loads a simple Google home page, but whenever I try to download anything else it rarely gets to another webpage. I'm sure this is something simple, but I can't find out how to fix it.
My desktop works swell using the same router and connection as have others that have used their wireless laptops from downstairs.
Please advise.
Thanks,
Bill

So...this doesn't ring a bell with anyone?
