If you get to the end of this topic and you think it is too hard then I don't blame you. I have tried everything, read what I can, installed a new driver for the 802.11bgn 1T2R Mini Card Wirless (22.214.171.124).
For a couple of years I have had a DSE XH9950 'g' wireless router. It was worked well with a MSI Wind Netbook which has wireless 'n' capability. The router is upstairs the the netbook is downstairs. There has been no problem connecting to the router.
I purchased a Netcomm NBPPlus4Wn about 3 weeks ago and send it back because I could only connect wirelessly to it every so often and when it did, the speed as unusable. It was sent back, saying that there was nothing wrong with it.
At present, nothing has changed as regards connecting wirelessly. I also have a NZ Tivo and a PlayonHD, I have tried to many times to connect to it that I just cannot remember whether the 2 devices connected or not.
So, I made the DSE Router an Access Point and all wireless devices connect to the 'g' SSID.
The netbook connects to the Netcomm as does the desktop PC fine if I use an ethernet cable.
At present, the 'n', 'g' and netbook are in the same room.
If I ping the 'g' router from the Netbook whilst connected to it, I get: time=1ms TTL=64
If I ping the 'n' router from the Netbook whilst connected to it, I get:
I lost one.
Average was 221ms
If I run inSSIDer the 'n' router is on channel 11, RSSI=-45, WPA2-CCMP. At present, the line is static over a 5 minute period.
If I run inSSIDer the 'g' router is on channel 1, RSSI=-40, WPA. At present, the signal appears to be fluctuating between (say) -37 and -80 (usually when I run inSSIDer the 'g' router is rock solid.
I can see 3 other routers on channel 11 (this suprises me, because I chose channel 1 at the time because there was only 1 other router using that channel).
I have tried all 3 channels (1,6,11) over a period of time and swapped my router channels e.g 1 and 11, then swapped to 11 and 1.
Just tried another ping on the 'n' router, whilst connected to it and all the requests timed out.
So I have disconnected and re-connected to the 'g' router and all is OK.
I know very little about networking apart from what I have read and if lucky, understood.
I have posted a topic on the Insanely Wind forum. There has been no postive help as yet over the past 3-4 days.
