okay, here is a puzzlement that i hope someone can help me with.
I have a wifi router that works. it communicates great with my desktop computer in another room.
I have an HP dv1432 us laptop, 6 years old, its wifi works fine with the neighbor's wifi signal and all hotel and airport wifi signals.
but i can't get this laptop to get wifi internet thru this, my own router.
it used to work fine. in Win XP it looks like it is connected, but while it sends a lot of packets very few are being received.
I tried shutting off zonealarm, no help. I tried changing the password and the channels, no help either. it's 4 feet away. transmitting b and g. yes, i enable the wifi button on the laptop.
i currently have an ethernet cable coming out of the wifi router into my laptop, works great. just no wireless connection.
any insight on troubleshooting this would be MOST appreciated!! i am tethered!
thanks, best, justin
fyi the internet wiring setup is a rcn wire into a d-link dcm-202 modem, that runs a wire to a vonage phone router, and that outputs to a netgear wgr614 v6 wifi router. hard wired works great. i see the router's wifi, it seems to hook up, then nothing.
