Hey there, I'm Tim....interesting problem. Does it just drop and pick up the connection over and over, completely drop it? How far away is the laptop from the Router?
hmm, so it appears to be slow? Can you go to this site on it and report back?
Sure, just report back when ready.
I need you to run the speed test, not out look please.
really odd behavior, i'll say that. I wounder if its a router setting, or if there is an IP conflict. Let me know what the speed test shows.
no problem, I understand. Be nive if i could remote into it, but if its not getting online on that router, it will do us no good. And all your other machines work fine with the router? Do you have another PC that is connected to the router, or just a phone?
ok, its just a standard speed testing site. Are you 100% sure the iphone and i pad are on the Router and not the jetpack? Can you please triple check?
And do you have an Ethernet cable so we can try wiring the Laptop into the router?
k, thank you. Do you have a Ethernet cable?
so it does not have an Ethernet port?
the adapter is likely pricey, but if you can find one, good. The other alternative is to go to somewhere and buy a USB wireless card, some are REALLY small, some are larger, but the price range on them is not crazy, we could use that to test if the onboard wireless card died, either or is OK
Walmart has them, many places, not sure where you are. But if it works, and say its too big, you can get one of these on amazon for very cheap.
wireless cards do break inside laptops, and everything really. But one thing is for sure, we need to get that laptop connected to the router to do anything. You could also take the latop to like Mcdonalds, or a coffee shop that has wireless and see if it works there. We're widdling down the problem
