Wireless not being received
Apologies in advance if I got the wrong forum.
We have a computer that receives wireless internet from the Linksys router. But it's getting trouble receiving signal, though within range. I've been doing some fixing on the computer and I've Stopped some programs that may be necessary for it to work properly. This computer gets internet just fine since it's directly wired in.
Both are Windows Vista, if that makes a difference.
Here are the ones Stopped from the Task Manager, Tab: Services, which look like they might be necessary -- hopefully you all will know:
KeyIso (CNG Key Isolation)
napagent (Network Access Protection Agent)
RasAuto (Remote Access Auto Connection Manager)
RemoteAccess (Routing and Remote Access)
RpcLocator (Remote Procedure Call [RPC) Locator)
SharedAccess (Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) )
WinHttpAutoProxySvc (WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service)
Wlansvc (WLAN AutoConfig)
I'm thinking when the computer receiving the wireless signal does get signal, it's not from this, that maybe I've disabled it by stopping one or more of those listed above, and that it's picking up signal from sombody living nearby, accounting for why sometimes he gets no signal.
Thank you for your assistance.
