Re: I need some help with my new laptop please
Reading your post makes me wonder if you only have one laptop or have another computer being the AP (access point).
I do not know about Belkin, but a router should be able to cover ~50 ft.
There are steps as you may have read, and one of them is channel you are broadcasting, the SSID name, the paraphrase to unlock the security encryption.
Are there possibilities that you move the router to a better place for wireless reception; why don't you use you computer as the AP (access point).
I am not sure what type of connection you have, but with cable and DSL, the internet connection can be moved. The material (wall,appliances) between the router and your laptop may be weakening the signal.
Good luck, I feel confident you will fine the solution.""Son's laptop OK but not yours? PCMCIA cards the same""
