    802.11b question

    I am attempting an 802.11b lan install, I have a dlink wireless router that is working on the wired lan and seems to be sending out a signal, on the system needing the wirless I have a dlink wirless PCI card and roughly between the two I have a Dlink wireless repeater. My system picks up a very strong signal (90% sig strength 90% sig quality) for about 5 min then every thing drops to 0% and connection is lost, if I fiddel with the antena connection comes back ocasionaly other times the sig takes hours to come back. Any ideas?

    Start looking around for other signs of electrical interference, any electronics at all...

    Especially cordless phones and TV's...

    Have you tried changing locations any (to try to isolate whether it is your equipment or your environment?)?

    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.
