Wireless signal inconsitent; sometimes cuts out

\015 I have a linkysis router with a wireless feature that has served me well for years on multiple laptops. However, I am having problems with my refurbished IBM R50 that I have not experienced before. It often shows only one bar and 'very weak' signal unless I download a large file at which point it can jump to 3 or 4 ! It also cuts out with 'no signal' when idling on a website. This unit did not come with an internal wifi capability (supposedly) so I am using a linksys card but again it workd fine with the old IBM laptop (T21 I think). Other laptops in my house work fine with good signal everywhere. Changing channels on the router does little good. Is this a hardware issue or a setting somewhere? the signal just does not seem to be well managed.\015

Answers :

If you are able to, take the the linksys card out of that IBM r50 and install it on another one of your laptops.If you get a great signal you know the card is good but if you move that card to another laptop and have the same problem you will have to replace the wireless card.If other laptops will not accept that card you can purchase a new Lynksys wireless usb adapter and see if that solves your problem.Those usb wireless adapters only cost about $35.Another way to seperate the problem would be to see if the IBM R50 will access any other wireless network with more signal strength.take your laptop to a public wireless connection(mcdonalds star bucks) any if you get a good signal than your problem is with your router.RATE ME IF THIS HELPS....Good LUCK!
