Weird wifi problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Whats up everybody. Alright I got a weird problem that has been perplexing me for days now. Here's my setep firstly. I'm running a netgear WNR2000 with DDwrt in one end of my house on the 2nd floor. I am trying to connect a desktop pc running windows 7 from my basement on the other end of the house. The signal seems to reach since I can have laptops right next to the pc and be able to connect. The desktop on the other hand seems to connect but cannot load web pages and will give me the yellow triangle in the wiresless menu whenever I try to load a diff web page or it seems to time out. The router says the comp is connected, the comp says its connected and I know I have at least some signal down there.

So far I have reformatted the comp and replaced the network card, rebooted the router, made sure router services are in check and have gone through countless network adapter settings to make sure everything is in place and good to go. I am about to run some things in cmd prompt to restart services to see if that helps. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What is your connection rate?
Can you ping your gateway address... ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -t What does your latency times look like? You can copy and paste your output here.

Do the same ping test once you see the triangle on the wireless icon.

Sounds like you have good signal at the desktop, but I wonder what your PC signal going back to the router looks like. The reason I say this is because usually the PC antenna is low to the ground with more objects to go through than a laptop on the desk.

Check in DD-WRT to see what your PC wireless strength is.. I believe it was on the status page.

Thanks for the help. I have an extended antenna for the pc that goes up and sticks to the wall of the basement from the nic card. The statuses are almost the same. I literally had both my laptop and desktop right next to each other while looking at the signal strength in the ddwrt page. Both had about the same which was around 14%. Def. not the greatest yet my laptop works fine while the desktop will rarely load a page. Ill try pinging other comps and such.
