Least I think it's the router... I have an 2 month old Inspiron 9300 with the Intel 2200 card. Bought the linskys router at around the same time. I had no problems for the first month and then noticed my wireless connection dropping out. Sometimes I could find my router on the list of networks and sometimes there were none listed. I wasn't sure if it was the card, the router or the DSL modem....until during one dropout I had my roommate try to get online with his PDA and he couldn't. Soooo...that led me to believe it's either the router or the modem. I've installed the lastest firmware for the router. Made sure I switched over to PPPoE for my DSL account. I'm using the Intel manager instead of Windows. It's very random and very frustrating. I'm using the WEP b/c according to the linksys tech guy, WPA "isn't supported very well" by the router. However, I've seen many posts around the net from ppl that have no problem with it. Can you suggest any other settings on the router that need to be checked and what they should be set at? I've done a few searches here and will continue to try to find threads that already discuss this....but thought I'd go ahead and put this out there in case you can lead me to the best thread/posts or if you have any ideas. I'm sure there is some stuff I'm forgetting to add...so let me know if you need more info. EDITED to add: It's not a telephone problem. I've used the phone while online and never a dropout. Thanks for any help!!!!!!
