I have 3 laptops on a wireless network. At times the signal fades to 1 mbps then goes to 11 mbps, 2, 5.5 is popular. It happens on all the computers. Whenever I travel, it happens on all the computers. I would like to know if there is some way to keep the mbps on the high end? I have "B" and "G" cards, some routers I know are "B" and others I don't know about. I'm not having too much problems getting on the networks, but staying with a good signal is tough. Any suggestions.

Regards,


Jim

internal wireless receiver or pcimia card (I know you wrote cards, but just checking on whether you were using that generically)?
I ask because a whole slew of laptops with internal antennas came out a couple years ago with the internal antennas wired backwards.

Are you using MS zero wireless configuration or a utility that came with your card/device driver? If the latter, disable the former in services.

Update your drivers?

I have two computers with internal wireless, both G, and 1 laptop with pcmia card in the oldest computer. The newest computer, June, 2005 has the latest update as well as the HP, may 2005. I am not sure what MS zero wireless configuration is. Please explain.

thanks
