I just built a new computer and threw on a usb wireless adapter (Zonet ZEW2546). Everything installed just fine, but when trying to connect to my wireless connection (in the room next door...) Sometimes it doesn't even see the connection, sometimes it hangs at finding the Network Address, and sometimes the connection disappears randomly in the middle of my work. The thing that bothers me the most is that the speed is at 24Mb/s - 36Mb/s. My old laptop is 4 years old and gets 54Mb/s almost all the time in the same room. I'm not really a networking guy, so I'm trying to find out why this might be happening? Could it be multiple computers using the connection in a close proximity?

Let me know what more information is needed, as I don't really work with networking issues...thanks a lot.

Hi, what I would try is disable your wireless card on your lappy and install the Zonet ZEW2546 on it and see if the issue continues, if so see if you can download newer drivers or the wireless adapter may be faulty.
