Hey everyone,

I have a TRENDnet TEW-412PC wireless card for my hp laptop. I have a Linksys 2.4GHz 54mbps wireless router in the room right next door to me. I just changed the Wireless mode to G-only in the router settings. The signal strength varies from Low to Very Good. Also the transfer speed seems to hang around 11mbps upto 36mbps. What's confusing me is the router is on the same floor and the next room over. Is there a way I can get the signal strength stable as well as the speed to 54mbps? Thanks in advanced.

Sean

I think your problem is with your notebook card. If you have a buddy with a different card try it. Good Luck.

Is it usb or pcmcia card (fat-credit card shape)? There are tricks to improve signal. Google a bit, if I have time Ill find a few links for you.

It is a PCMCIA card since this model didn't have a built-in wireless card. Lately the speeds have been hangin around 24mbps but I'm going to figure a way to have both my new desktop and the laptop hooked upto the ethernet ports on my router..since the router is right next door. I'll google it for a bit and see if anything comes up..thanks
