have roughly 25 pcs, dell with wireless 1450 usb adapter. periodically random PC's signal drops to 2Mbs and no packets transvers, and internet is lost. network connections still shows connection to AP. Have contacted Dell and been told to look at AP. any suggestions?
further info: wireless windows configuration is on, advanced settings set to any avialable network and nonpreffered net on auto, powersaves off, ap's us a ssid but are not encrypted no wep, ap's have to be added to the wireless networks via the properties of the network connection and when the signal is dropping it loses the wireless networks tab in this menu as well.
We have about 25 Dell D610 laptops that came with 1450 cards installed, had 4 more D 610 that had 2915 cards installed. 1450 caused major trouble, 2915 did not, requested that Dell replace 1450 with 2915, laptops under warranty, once that was completed troubles went away
vhaiowsaged, could you please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a customer that's having same problem and need to know what process you went with Dell to have cards replaced. Maybe by providing a previous Dell problem case as a reference will speed up their solution. Thanks.
