Just to let you good people know what I have done so far:
1:Changed the channel from 11 to 6
2. Created a new SSID for wireless connection
3. Restarted/reset router.
I have a wireless program called Odyssey which came preinstalled on my laptop which is supposed to manage my wireless connection and this sused to show in black when it used to work and now continously shows in white (disconnected state)
anyone come across this software before.
