I used to use the wireless network at home as my laptop has an internal wireless card. I also sometimes used to connect to the router via a cable. Then, I downloaded a version of IE7 and anything remotely associated with my Internet stopped working...even my copy of Firefox.
I moved house, a lot happened and now I am back on a different wireless network. When I turn my laptop on, it can see at least six different networks including mine which it refuses (most of the time) to connect to. When it does, it connects at 54mbps, then drops to 11, then 5.5, then 2 and then 1Mbps where it hangs around for a while and then disconnects. This is what I cannot fix.
What have I tried?
I have; reinstalled XP totally from scratch, uninstalled all my internet programs, formatted my hard drive, disabled my wireless connection and used a different driver, recently bought a fully functioning external wireless card which experiences the same drop in transfer rate and then cuts out.
This is very annoying because, my flatmate's laptop works perfectly. Mine never works.
Help, what is the best thing for me to do?
thanks, all comments welcome.
