Whenever I use my laptop to connect to the internet via Wifi, the internet connection becomes intermittent. Although the Wifi signal is excellent, but all webpage I go to states "webpage cannot be found". All downloads halt and I cannot connect to Yahoo Messenger.
We already ruled out the DSL connection because when I connect the laptop directly to the modem, I do not experience this problem.
We are also sure that the router is not the problem because my friend tried my router (Linksys WRT120N) on their house and he did not encounter any problem. I tried using another friend's Linksys WRT54G and the problem persisted and got worse. The intermittent connection became longer and more frequent.
As soon as I turn the Wifi button on my laptop off, I would easily be able to browse the web continuously using the iPhone. But when I turn it on, both the iPhone and Laptop simultaneously get disconnected after minutes of using.
Please help. It took me months to pinpoint the problem to the laptop and it is really frustrating. I'm not sure now if my hardware is the problem or the software or settings.
Thank you very much.
