let me ask first if you have had any shocks that may have hit the router, mine went out cause of this, replacing it might be the LAST resort. But let me say this first, if you are not getting a good connection and speed first make sure the least amount of walls are between each and the distance, then make sure they are close on the same level and the antennas are straight up. As for wireless cards there is not much difference except for router and card must be the same group ( router B/G, card B or G. N1 with N1. and so on ) The best card I have found is from Ralink, pcmcia card is from Proxim w/i ext. antenna. Best router I think built is Belkin- good range, speed and if I blow it up it is replaced for a lifetime. Not to get you confused, but you can go on-line and find out what the address is to your router and check to see if it is in high range and tranmitting the correct letter code ( Belkin is 192.168.2.1 ) plus you can change its' name. Use caution when upgrading a router, you can knock it out. Hope this helps and I will check back when I can to see if I can help anymore.
I have a Netgear DG834G wireless router at my home which has been working fine for last couple of year untill last 2 months.
I have not been able to get proper speeds on the wireless network. The computer that is connected directly yo the router gets around 360-380KBps which is what I should be getting. I used to get the same speed on my wireless network as well. But something has gone wrong for last 2 months and I can't figure out what, which is causing the problem in wireless network.
I haven't changed anything. Installed new drivers, rolled back to old one's (for wireless card). No firmware upgrade is available for router so can't upgrade the firmware either to see if its the router.
I can't pin point my finger at the problem at the moment which has finally made me post on this forum.
I have a built in Intel Wireless Pro 2915ABG card in Toshiba Tecra along with the Netgear DG834G router.
If some one can help me track down the problem that would be great.
If anyone can suggest a PCMCIA card whose compatibility is good with Netgear DG834G, would also be appreciated. I have tried a USB Wireless-N card from Linksys, but it didn't work at all for some reason.
Thanks in advance
