:flowers: I have wireless internet and it used to work great. For the past week or so I have been getting LOW, VERY LOW and NO SIGNAL. I am not very technical and wondered if there is something easy I can do to correct the problem? :thumbsup: THanks for any information/advice.

If you have a standard linksys/dlink router, you can connect to it using the internet explorer. Just type in the address field "Http://192.168.1.1" (that is if your on a typical network address). Then go to your wireless settings and try setting the "Channel" to 1 instead of 6. This might help your problem. If not you could always try going to a computer store, and buy a more powerful antenna for either your router, or computer itself.

Dear Curious,
Please read the discussion on my recent post, descibing a similar problem:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/81399/wireless-signal-54-36-1-54-2-mbps/

Also, look into updating the drivers for your internal wireless network card. There is a good tutorial on this website describing how to do this.

Lastly, if your wireless router is a Linksys, their 24/7 telephone support is outstanding. The technicians will help you get your computer back to its once usable and fast state. They may help you with updating the router's firmware, or setting optimum values on the router's setup page.
