So i'm currently renting a room and the landlord said internet was included from her wireless router... which it is, to an extent.
I'm using my custom built (by me) computer with a TrendNet wireless card running XP pro
Landlord uses a mini mac or whatever the hell that thing is
I didn't get a good look at the router she had but it was a Dlink di-### (I think it's a 624 but not sure)
I'm sure there's more info. that would help so just ask and I will tell, if I know it
Obviously it's not working as it should or I wouldn't be here...
I entered the SSID, hex code, 64 bit, wep, channel 6 and I almost always have 80% signal strength and link quality but the internet keeps cutting out or only working in short bursts. I have also tried it with my iPod touch and it can find the router and connect to it but when I try to load a web page it says it isn't connected to the internet.
Here is the kicker... When she leaves, and I assume she turns off her computer, my internet works almost perfectly but when she comes home my net slows to a crawl and starts its usual cutting out.
I have asked a friend about this and he says some routers only allow one computer to connect at a time or something along those lines? Is that possible? If indeed it sounds like a router problem could anyone suggest a good wireless router that is mac/pc compatible and allows more than 1 computer on at a time?
Thanks in advance for any help
