With XP, I have LAN at home and download quickly. When I go to a wireless at a motel, I always have major problems. I've got a Linksys "boosted" wireless card and it will connect to wireless systems but the computer can't find the internet on many of them. Then when I switch to Windows wireless manager, things go S L O W ! ! ! First, what's the problem, or better yet solution, to the internet not being found when using the Linksys wireless manager? Second, when I am able to connect at i.e. 24mbs and good signal strength with the Windows wireless manager, why is downloading SO slow? In fact, about 80% of the time, when I try to download something, it'll go part way and stall, won't download at all. Surely wireless has to be better than this!? I'm using Sygate personal firewall, AVG Free, Ewido security suite, ad-watch, etc. At home I also use a physical router and don't have these problems, so's got to be something in the wireless hookup or software. Thanks for any tips for improvemen t!
