Hello Bleeping Computers! - I wonder if you can help... Here at work (A beautiful school) we have a wireless network set up around two areas of the building, all the same domain, curriculum (learning) side, but;
In one area, my 'A-Block', there are two cabinets of 25 laptops that are used there, however, one set of computers (Acers) seems to drop the connection to the wireless network at random times - usually after around ten to fifteen minutes this begins, some computers don't lose connectivity, some do. - The other set of computers (Toshibas) work perfectly, although they use a PCMCIA WiFi card, not an internal one like in the Acers.
We use 3Com wireless senders and Acer Travelmate 2350 laptops, also to note is that another area of the school uses the same technologies and doesn't have the same problems of lost connectivity.
Does anyone know of any reasons that I might pursue to investigate this further as its got me stumped, and several teaching staff have voiced concerns that the system isn't quite as efficient as it could be...
O Mighty Sages of the Web, please help.
