Having problems with your Dell XPS One Desktop ?

Wireless issues with my Dell XPS/Dimension One desktop

\015 I just bought a Dell XPS/ Dimension one desktop and I'm having issues with the preformance of the wireless connection. I get my internet connection from my parents wirless router on the other side of our duplex. For the past four years my dell inspirion laptop has done very well with the connection from next door, but my new desktop connects but runs very slow from site to site, and sometimes will just freeze. I even went next door and placed the computer right next to the signal and while it ran slightly better, it still was way too slow for the dsl connection. Also a problem window keeps coming up explaining that there is a problem with the Home Router, even though both my parents and my old laptop, both Dell inspirion, function excellent with the current system. Do laptops connect to wireless connections much better than desktops? And is there a solution to help my desktop with its wireless internet preformance? Both questions I was hoping to get answered through FixYa\015

Answers :

Even if it's a new Dell, you may need to update either the drivers for the wireless card or the BIOS.

Also, verify which protocol your Dell is set to use (i.e. 802.11g, 802.11b, auto-select, etc.). Dell may have fixed to to a slower protocol for compatibility.
