    I have a problem I can't seem to resolve. I have the following equipment:

    - BEFW11S4 4 port switch/wireless router
    - Firmware version 1.45.10, Apr 15 2004
    - IBM Thinkpad R51 built in wireless b/g

    When I am in my bedroom where signal is poor-good I get excellent performance on my internet. When I move closer to the router and the signal is very good- excellent, my internet connection is extremely slow or drops completelty. I can ping the router and view other computers on the network - only the internet connection is problematic.

    I suspected interference but there is no appliance or anything that I know of that might cause interference. I tried rebooting the laptop and router but no luck.

    As soon as I move further away the internet connection works fine.

    Any suggestions?
