Hi, since i set up a wireless network i have on three ocasions got ' feedback' on the laptop speakers, when i say feedback i mean a LOUD and i mean LOUD, noise .... like a high pitch sound..

Lift my ears 'ringing'..... that loud...

Only way to shut it is to shut the laptop down..

Its a DEll , with the speakers on mute...
Linksys card and WAP...

Any time this happened the laptop was on the same desk as the WAP, can you get feedback? How? Why? and how do i stop it...

Is there a minimun distance between the WAP and the laptop?

I can't keeping wearing earmuffs everytime i use my laptop, and i dont think its doin the speakers any good!!!

Thanks

Does your Laptop have a built-in microphone? If it does it may be turned on. This would be one reason for feed-back. j.

Find the sound loop and break it.

Djohn is right.

Look for active microphones, then look for a speaker, which is positioned so that you can draw a straight line between the two.

Lookin at this i can't see a built in mic...

So you dont think this is the Wireless network?

Also i might add that i only happened at startup, and never during use....

Thanks
