Recently I went to the Malware section of Geeks to Go for different issues. I mentioned my problem with the wireless broadband there and here is what he wrote in response:
"Hi David, you should ask any other questions (not related to malware) in the proper forum next time. But to answer your wireless question quickly, it can be due to many reasons. Is there any interference nearby? Any walls in between? Have you tried changing the wireless channel to another one like 6 or 11? If those suggestions doesn't help, ask in the appropriate forum for more assistance. Or wait until we are done (maybe it's spyware related? who knows...)"
Now, to save some time and answer HIS questions, what kind of interference might you mean? The area that it works is near a TV, DVD player, and stereo. Every other area may or may not have interference, but I get no bars and no availible service. The opne area where it does works gets anywhere from 2 to 0 bars.
Since I'm in my house, there are walls. I don't know what the wireless channel is or where I can change them.
Thank you. The Malware section helped me out splendidly. I appreciate all of the help you guys can provide.
