Ok…not an entirely original thread topic…but stick with me.
Firstly…a question. Why…if the wireless network connection systray thingy is reporting limited or no connectivity…it knows that my router is set for 54Mbps speed and that it knows the broadcast name (SSID) of the router? If it knows these things why the heck will it not go just that itzy bitzy futher and connect?
My story is that my wife and I bought two NC10s a couple of weeks ago or so…both from ebuyer.co.uk…and I have been able to get wifey’s sammy wirelessly surfing a treat…and mine now isn’t even though I got it going a week or so ago.
I haven’t used my sammy since and this weekend I have found time to start tarting up the sammy…the usual add/remove programs…BIOS changes and stuff…and my sammy wireless won’t work.
I have made an image of my wifey’s sammy and dumped that on mine…no joy.
I’ve done a quick restore of XP using the samsung recovery solution…no joy.
I’ve updated the drivers for the chipset and Atheros AR5007EG…no joy.
I’m struggling for more things to try.
I need help immediately…if not sooner.
Help a dinosaur today…I am sure some of you young wizzkids can sort me out.
Thanks and bye.
Panic over…I’ve sorted it.
Installed XP Pro…then the drivers…then (and this is where I think the real difference was made)…I rebooted the router.
Of course…I do wonder if I would have had it working 5 hours earlier if I had rebooted the router.
I could do a Samsung Restore and see…but I won’t 🙂
Glad to hear you got your problem sorted Ian.
