wifi disconnects, due to new laptop?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,
So, when me and my gf are sitting upstairs, we have quite good connection, that was with her older laptop.
Now that her older one died, she bought a new one, but ever since she bought that new one, when were upstairs, the internet is disconnecting me all the time, leaving me without any internet .. it's really frustrating, anyone know how this comes?

Huh?

So once she connect with her new laptop your connection starts to drop? Or does it happen even when she doesn't connect? I think we need more information before any answer can be given.

Have you tried rebooting the AP (the box where you connect to)? Are you using encryption on the wifi?

What router are you using? Maybe you are using wireless G and she's using N.

Here's something from Linksys website:

Mismatched router and adapter settings

For best results, Wireless-N routers should be paired with Wireless-N adapters in the same way that Wireless-G routers should be paired with Wireless-G adapters.

Should there be a mix of Wireless-G and Wireless-N adapters connecting to the network, it would be best to set the wireless network mode to Mixed. This will allow Wireless-G devices to have a stable connection to the network and will allow the Wireless-N device to still connect to the network but will be performing based on the Wireless-G speed.


Not much is known so I'm just throwing out things I could think of.
