Talk talk - dell wireless problems

Likes # 0

I have an intermittent problem with a wireless connection between a talktalk wireless router and dell inspiron laptop. The laptop words reliably with all other networks. The router works reliably with all other laptops. Today, sunday and yesterday id dosent work. It was ok on Friday. This problem has been ongoing for a year.

I have repeatedly gone through all the connection and setup and problem finding routines with zero success.

Can anyone help ?

Tim

Have you tried changing the Channel Number in the router?

Most routers use either 6 or 11 as their default so try these or, if already using one of them, try the other. Avoid 1 and 2, as these use frequencies shared by other domestic wireless devices. Also avoid 12 and 13 as, in some other countries, these are not legal and consequently many WiFi adapters are designed not to connect on these channels.
