Does / is anyone aware of any update issues within the last 7-10 days that have adverse effects on wireless connectivity.
I run a dual boot with win 7 or vista and ubuntu 11.10.
Wireless modem is indicating no problems but have lost connectivity on 2 desktops and a laptop.
Thanks - just need to check on any known problems before remaking connections.
Yep, and others would have felt it.
How long has this problem been going on? Could your upstairs neighbor just be doing a lot of microwaving?
Try speedtest.net and pingtest.net if you can get online at all.
If you have a spare ethernet cable (hope you do), try plugging one of the computers directly into the router. This would show you whether it's actually a wireless problem.
I had an old linksys b wireless router - swapped it out and it is up and running.
It doesn't even have wep enabled but wants a password and user name to log in.
I dont think i ever created one on it - maybe factory password and user
Thanks for reply.
