Hi there.

I've recently moved into a new house with a 20mb connection. I was using ethernet straight from the router for a while until I could purchase my wireless USB card. I was getting download speeds of 20mb using speedtest.net/com when connected with the cable. Now however on wireless I am only getting 1mb. My signal is 4/5. Drivers are upto date. I dont really know what to do so I would appreciate some help.

Many thanks

Simon

Hi there just a quick update.

The wireless in the house has appeared to have lost its range or something. I am on a friends laptop next to the router now and its fine. But me and my housemate upstairs are both picking up the signal (4/5) but our net doesnt seem to work. Mine however breifly comes on for about one second every minute then goes off despite it saying it is always connected at very good signal strengh. I do know enough about networking to know we are both picking up the signal correctly but other than that I am completely lost.

This has become quite urgent for us since my housemate is currently studying and needs his internet asap. We cant get help from our providor for a couple of days.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post and I really hope someone could help us.

Cheers, Simon.
