Q: Slow speeds over home network, cannot connect to ZyXel NWA1100 and more

Hi all, and thanks for this great forum.

I having issues with my new home network setup.. So Im hoping you guyes could help me out. Im getting really slow speed over the home network. Especially from my computer to my readynas (transferspeeds around 260kbps). In addition I cant access my NWA1100 via the ip adress. My setup is:

Modem Router from internet supplyer (Zhone)
ZyXEL ES1100-16 Switch
ZyXEL NWA1100 Access point
ReadyNAS 2100

Im using win 7 on a dell XPS430 computer.

Here is some information, hope you can understand, its in norwegian:

Preferred Solution: Slow speeds over home network, cannot connect to ZyXel NWA1100 and more

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm wondering if there's any way I can increase the data transfer speed between 2 of my computers on my wireless network. I'm seeing about 1.25MB/s according to the box that shows you the speed/duration of a file transfer. I'd love to even triple this tiny speed because I am trying to transfer nearly 500GB between my computers before I hit the road again (I'm a truck driver). Thanks.

I have no idea why this is occurring. I have full wi-fi signal and I have a fast broadband connection.

Every now and again the connection speed to just one PC drops to a point where there is almost no activity. I get various "connection timed out" and "DNS lookup failed" errors, then after about 10 minutes of frustration everything works again.

I know this problem is isolated to just this one PC as I have done Internet speed tests from another computer.

I have tried using different wireless cards, resetting the router, changing DNS servers. Nothing has worked.

So, I know that at one point in the past my Home Network File Transfer Speeds use to be better than what I'm getting at the moment.

I'm by no means Network Savvy, so please bare with me. I know enough just to get into trouble.

Question 1
From what I've been told your Home Network Speeds can be put to a screeching halt if you have a device that is particularly slower than most of your other devices (ie. a 802.11b device where most of the devices on your network are /g or /n. or a 10/100 device where most others are 10/100/1000) Is this true?

My Setup:
I have 2 fairly new Toshiba Satellite Laptops (802.11n) that are almost always connected via WiFi and not LAN.
I have 1 D-Link DIR 865L AC Router centrally located in my home for the best reach of signals.
I have 1 WD My Book Live 2TB NAS connected directly to my Router via Ethernet.
I have 1 Samsung Series 6 Smart TV
I have 1 D-Link Baby Monitor connected via WiFi (802.11b I "THINK")
I have 1 iPad Mini, 1 iPhone 6, and 1 Samsung Galaxy S5 that are all also connected.
All my Ethernet Cable is Cat 5e, hard to find 6 where I live.
My Router Channel is manually set to 11 (best possible) due to conflicting Home Networks around my area.
Router Mode is set to Mixed Mode (a, b, g, n) All of my devices except our 2 phones fall into this category.
Both of my Computers are joined in a Home Group.

Now, here are my current speeds.

I tested a few different methods on both of my Computers, all Methods using the sa... Read more

Ok, I have a very frustrating problem here and am just about at my wits' end!

I've just performed a clean install of Windows 7 onto a desktop PC. Up until today everything was going fine. I had a wireless network set up and could access the internet through my BT Voyager router. However, today we switched to a ZyXEL P-660HW-T1 V2 router and I can no longer access the internet (or even just the wireless network).

The strange part is that I can actually see the network, i.e. my wireless card detects and names it correctly but when I attempt to connect Windows 7 just gives me a message that it cannot connect. It has never prompted me to enter the WPA key at any stage.

I might have accepted that there are some compatibility issues between ZyXEL and W7 if I wasn't typing this through the same router, same wireless network and using W7 on my laptop!

To rule out some basics:

1. I tried a fresh clean install of W7 and this time did not connect to the BT Voyager network but attempted to connect straight to the ZyXEL network. Still no joy.

2. Afterwards I tried to connect to the BT Voyager network and, hey presto, it works fine.

3. The signal strength is very strong.

4. My wireless card is pretty old - a D-Link Air DWL-510 Wireless PCI Adapter but I have the latest drivers I could find. I've also tried using a USB Belkin 802.11g to connect but again fails. (Both methods can connect to the BT Voyager however).

5. I only have one router switched... Read more

A:Solved: Wireless Network Visible But Still Will Not Connect. ZyXEL P-660HW-T1 V2 & Wi

Ok, panic over. I'm dumb. Nothing to see here, move along!

So the router is broadcasting on 'g' which would explain why my D-link 'b' card couldn't pick it up.

As for the Belkin there are no specific W7 drivers but by running v.4 in 'Vista' compatibility mode (no service packs) and making sure all previous Belkin software and drivers were removed, it finally worked!

P.s. for anyone else trying this, make sure the Belkin adapter is NOT plugged in until prompted by the installation.

Hi there. I'm a home networking novice, learning on the fly. I have a Dell 3.2GHz P4 running WinXP home and a Dell 600MHz PIII running Win98SE that I successfully networked together (Ethernet) this past weekend.

The network card in the PIII is the one it shipped with from Dell 4 or so years ago (it occupies a PCI slot), the network card in the P4 is an onboard (Intel PRO/100 VE?) model, and I bought a Linksys EtherFast cable/dsl router with 4 port switch.

In the Local Area Connection box on my P4 machine I see a connection speed of 100Mbps. Is this the theoretical max I can expect with my hardware set up?

Will I not be capable of reaching my max speed because of a basic onboard NIC in one machine and an old NIC in the other machine?

In short, should I buy two new Fast Ethernet NIC's and install them to get my best performance? I'll be using the network to transfer files between machines, share the internet, share printers and a little gaming.

After installing my network, I copied (from the P3 to the P4) 225MB of picture files in roughly 5 minutes. Does this speed sound appropriate considering my machines and hardware set up? I don't know what to expect.

Thanks for the help.

A:Home network speeds? Hardware?

You might be happy to get ca. 50-60 Mbps on a theoretical 100Mbps connection. See http://www.hawaii.edu/brownbags/networks/network.opt.pdf for a summarised presentation.

If both NICs claim to be 100 Mbps that is what you'll get - after the allowances made above, then maybe a max of 60Mbps. Obviously, if one card is 10Mbps, or the hub/router is 10 Mbps then that rather puts a cap on expected throughput!

In answer to your last question yes, if you install gigabit hardware all round then expect gigabit performance (allowing for all the protocol overheads, collisions, re-trying, etc as per the above paper).

Hello Everyone,

I have a friend who's having issues with the speed of her net at home, on one particular laptop. She just purchased a new Asus laptop not too long ago and while she's at ODU her speeds are fine, when shes home it drops very low. She also has another laptop and desktop that are perfectly fine, and get the top speed their isp provides.

On the problem laptop (the Asus)
Shes running windows 7 64 bit, the router is a Linksys E1200, the network card itself is an Atheros AR9485

Her speeds at home are : 0.52 mbps on the Asus, while her other laptop and desktop gets 33 mbps
Her speed at school is 28 mbps on the Asus

So we are trying to figure out why her Asus wants to act up at home and not at school

A:Very slow internet speeds at home, but not at school on one laptop

it does not sound like a computer problem -- may be a router/wireless/network setting problem--to try to eliminate possibilities...
try plugging the machine into the router directly with a cable--if the speed picks up then there's a setting somewhere that needs a tweak.

I'm using a hub and have 2 different computers hooked up to it, mine being the server. I don't know what kind of network you would classify it as but I'm using it to ftp files to different computers, hope this makes since. But anyway, whenever I hook the cable directly computer to computer I get transfer speeds of about 9-10mb but whenever I run it through the hub I don't get anything over 1mb. Anyone have any idea why the hub would be slowing things down?


A:Slow Network Speeds

Replace it with a 10/100 switch or if you are on broadband, a router with built-in 10/100 switch.

Hubs let through selective traffic from one user at a time, whereas switches let through all traffic simultaneously.

It also sounds as if you have some slow 10MB NICs. Replace these with 10/100 NICs

Currently have a WiFi network setup for internet. Both computers connect to the router via WiFi Dongles. Which is running no problems.

Each computer is then plugged into a network switch (cheap 4 port stand alone unit) via Ethernet cables (gigabit ports) and into the switch I have also have a WD My Cloud.

Having various issues, such as unidentified network, network being defaulted back to public, the ip addresses I have assigned being reset to obtain automatically and only getting transfer speeds of 3MB/s

Running windows 10. No home group/work group setup, have 1 drive on the other computer shared and mapped as a network drive.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Large Send Offload is a technique of improving network performance while at the same time reducing CPU overhead. Apparently it does not work very well, so it was suggested to disable it. If you would like to know about LSO, check this MSDN article from 2001 (Task Offload (NDIS 5.1) (Windows Drivers)).

LSO is an option located in a Device Manager under your network adapter, so this solution requires Administrator Privileges.

Follow these steps:
1.Open Start Menu, right-click on Computer and select Properties
2.Under Control Panel Home located on the left side of the window click on Device Manager
3.You will get a list of all devices on your machine. Expand Network Adapters.
4.Find your Network Card and double-click on it.
5.Select Advanced tab. You will get a list filled with different options.
6.Select Large Send Offload V2 (IPv4) and set the value to Disabled
7.Do the same for Large Send Offload V2 (IPv6) if it is available
8.Click OK

After clicking OK, tried to send a file over the LAN network. Transfer speed started very slow, but it was gradually picking up speed. Decided to restart the computer and try to send that file again and this time it worked like a charm.

Now that sending of files worked as it should, also checked speed for receivi... Read more

Hi guys,
I have three computers on my home network:
(a) desktop in the office with ASUS USB-N53 adapter
(b) new desktop in the office with fairly old Broadcom PCI 802.11g adapter
(c) media box hooked up to TV hard wired to router

I recently mapped a drive on system A so that it could be shared with system B (they are side by side). Unfortunately, upon trying to transfer files the speeds are terrible! I am only getting between 500kb/s and 1mb/s.
Is this due to my relatively old wireless G adapter?

thanks :S

A:Slow Transfer Speeds over Network

It could be. You really need to use on both desktops wired connections. If you are going to use Wifi and transfer large files. You may want to invest into a Wireless-ac router and same for the adapters for the computers.

Wireless transfers only go as fast as the slowest connection.

Hey everyone. Computer is an X1 Carbon Gen4 with Win10 Pro. No recent modem/router changes. No software changes. No updates available through TVSU (at least that's what it says.. I use to have updates available every couple of days and it's said there were no packages available for my system for almost a month now)/Lenovo website. Windows updates current. All drivers should be current. For some reason, only on this laptop, I'm getting around 50Mbps down instead of my normal 230Mbps down. Just started within the past couple days. It's not location related, I've eliminated that possibility. I powercycled the modem and router. I did a factory reset on the router. I tried using Google's DNS (I had to do that on my MBP to get the correct speeds out of it on the 5Ghz network) and it didn't change. My upload speeds are normal at 20-23Mbps. Any idea? My iPhone and MacbookPro are getting correct speeds.

I got my Fiber line installed about 2 months ago. The offer I pay for says 1Gbits/s down and 200Mbits up. Naturally, I've never even gotten close to those speeds. At first, when the guy did his thing, I didn't have an Ethernet cable on hand (despite being a network and IT student...I know, the irony), so I used the router's Wifi. I was averaging 70 Mbits down. At first, I was thinking, 'this seems a bit low'...for fibre of course). I went into lectures the next day and people said, you may need to wait for your line to be properly activated...this seemed plausible, so I waited. The next week I stuck an RJ45 on some CATVE and immediately went to average 500Mbits/s (688Mbits/s record). Now, this is great, but it's still half of what I'm paying for.

However, for the past 2 days, I've been having problems. My Desktop (after coming out of sleep) always has the yellow triangle symbol over the wireless icon (faulty ethernet cable so was back to WiFi). I disconnect and reconnect to find the same problem. I restart the wireless on the router, to find the problem is persisting. Only after 3-5 tries does it work. My phone too has been having trouble connecting to WiFi (Authentification problem).

The original CAT5 cable has since 'developed' a problem and has been changed. The Pc hasn't been having the connection problem out of sleep, but Chrome is very slow to do anything. Youtube loads every other time, social media too. I... Read more

Hello everyone,
I have 3 or 4 devices connected via a wireless connection, 2 of which are in the same room. Roughly a week ago, my desktop (Vista OS) started to suffer from severely reduced download speeds (5-30kb/s), while my laptop (also Vista OS) which is on the same wireless network continues to run at normal speeds (500kb/s-1mb/s).

I have tried a system restore, scanning for viruses, updating/disabling antivirus and firewalls, connecting directly to LAN, changed wireless interface speed from g to b to mixed, changed wireless channels from 1-6-11, nothing seems to work.

I have a Thomson TG782T router with a D-Link wireless card (which is rather old). I will be happy to post system specs if it helps diagnose this problem.

Please feel free to move this if it should be in the hardware section, I'm thinking it may be a hardware issue.

Thanks in advance.

Win XP Pro SP2
Hey everyone. I have an issue that's driving me nuts. All of a sudden my internet download speed seems to have dropped. But, when viewing my connection or doing online speed tests, the speeds are actually great. I cannot stream video most of the time and images take longer than ever before to load. Web pages sometimes load fast and other times they will hang for a little while before downloading. If I try to download a file, my download box pops up but takes at least a minute or two to begin showing progress. Its as if im behind a proxy or something. The real kicker is that when im in safe mode with networking my speeds are great. My actually system is working as smooth as ever. Any suggestions here?

My PC's network card is configured as 100 Mbps

My Home Hub 3 shows both connected at 100 Mbps, yet I'm getting a maximum of 1.3M transferring a file to the NAS.

Is there any way I can increase this ?
I get the same speed from my 20Mbps download from my DSL.

A:Slow Network Transfer Speeds on Local LAN

Your hub is probably whats causing the problem. Hubs are only able to run in 1/2 duplex mode so your speed is only 50 mbps.

100 Mbps (Mega bits per second) connection maximum theoretical speed is 12.5 MBps (Mega Bytes per sec)

A hub that runs in 1/2 duplex mode runs at 50 Mbps = 6.25 MBps

This is theoretical maximum speeds.

To increase you speeds i would suggest replacing your hub with a switch. If you want to increase it more add gigabit hardware to all your machines. That will give you a maximum of 125 MBps. On my Gigabit network I normally see network transfer speeds around 70-100 MBps.

I hope this helps.

So when transferring files from one pc to another using copy and paste, why does it only say 2-3 maybe 5-6 or so..

I’m using windows vista, but it’s the same in XP when I was using it. I share a folder on network, browse to this shared folder using another PC on the network (same workgroup) and i copy and paste say a 600mb file. The transfer speed reports (in vista. xp don’t have this feature) that its around 3mb/s or so, whatever it says, it’s not "what it should be" regardless if its 100mbit(10MB/S) or gbit(100MB/s) network.

Now on the advanced config of the network adapter there are various settings that control the network adapter. Does one of these determine the overall speed or the transfer? Maybe a firewall or router is slowing the transfer; therefore a port should be opened? is so what port? Or are speeds slow due to windows..but where can I find information about such a bug, i mean iv looked and looked.

maybe I’m just not googleing the right thing

so anyway if someone knows anything that could help me speed up the transfer of data between two pc's on a windows network, It would be a great help.

I am transferring some files over my network using the Python SimpleHTTPServer on a Xubuntu box.


python -m SimpleHTTPServer
The server is a mediocre, 4-5 year old machine AKA David. I don't have the exact specs to hand but it was bargain bucket in 2009

The client is a big powerful monster of a machine. Big games rig. AKA Goliath.

The router has a theoretical transfer speed of 300Mb/s. It's a TP-Link TL-WR841N.

My actual non-concurrent download speed is ~ 4Mb/s.

This isn't really my area and I was wondering if anyone can explain why this is? All connections are via Ethernet cable. David is connected via Ethernet. Goliath is connected via Ethernet to a Powerline Adapter which in turn is Ethernet connected. Over wireless, I am getting ~1.5Mb/s.

I'm not expecting the full theoretical maximum but surely better than 4Mb/s? Is there anyway to improve this? Why am I getting such a slow connection? I'm interested in the academic side of things here as well as the technical solution (if any)

My theory is that my rubbish-y old network card is throttling. Possible?


A:Solved: Slow-ish transfer speeds over network

Several things here. First, the NIC(s) used can affect the speed, even the driver version can have an affect. Second, how each NIC is connected and configured (ie: 10half, 10Full, 100half, 100Full, etc.).

Verify the configuration end to end. Also, the router itself, and in this configuration, the powerline adapter can/are likely further reducing the speed.

Try moving everything to the same room and test. ie: David > short ethernet > router > short ethernet > Goliath

That will give you the best possible results with your current hardware (assuming there aren't any configuration issues).

hi folks, was wondering if the networking gurus here could shed some light on a pesky network speed issue that's been bugging me for a while now.
I have some large files that I'm trying to transfer over an 802.11n network via various high end routers and max transfer speed I get over all of them is 45Mbps, even though the routers are very close by and the
Link speed on both laptops is 300Mbps.

First laptop is a Dell M6700 with Windows 7 Professional, with Intel Centrino Advanced N 6205 a/b/g/n wireless card , driver Date 6/16/2013, v , provided by Microsoft.

Second laptop is an Asus Q325UA (UX370UAR) with Windows 10 Home with Intel Dual Band AC8260 wireless card. (Driver Date 3/19/18, v, provided by Microsoft).

Between them I have a Linksys EA6350 router with latest firmware, supporting  both 2.4 and 5ghz.  and have set the network to 5ghz,  Since the Windows 7 Intel Centrino cannot support AC protocol, I have set the 5ghz network to Auto.  The
router has the latest firmware.
Network utilization seems to be only about 15%. 

Per article at https://www.ghacks.net/2016/08/05/windows-10-limiting-internet-speed/

I set up a network folder on one of my computers and I use another computer on the network to manage the files on it. It all works fine until I try to copy a file or folder from one location on the network drive to another location on the same network drive. Instead of copying the file locally, the network computer sends the file to my remote computer, which sends it back to the same network computer. This means it takes ages to copy large files because they go over the network completely unnecessarily. Is there a way to fix this issue? Can I tell Windows not to transfer files across the network when it's unnecessary? Thanks for any help!

ok folks.......i am begging someone on here to help me - on the verge of going back to windows 7. Tried everything.
help me. please.

i have an x99 chipset pc, i7 5820k, 16gb ram, gtx nvidia 970 - its a good pc (meant to be anyway............).
it's connected directly to my router, as are a few other pc's in the house including a laptop - all via lan cable, as is my NAS drive.

a few weeks ago i noticed file transfer speeds had dropped, really slow. I've tried all sorts, including 2 fresh formats trying a combination of things. Different slots on the router, different cables, the whole 'large send offload' disabled thing, everything.
None of it works.
I've been doing side by side tests, vs my Asus laptop (also on windows 10, and the last thing i'd expect in the house to work properly) - transferring the same file, from the same location on my NAS, to a local drive (ssd drives both on laptop and on pc).
With the laptop i get average transfer speeds of this 9gb file of 50-70 mb/s, every time, consistently, No problem at all.
With the PC, one time it will start at 55-60 and slow right down. Other times it'll start at 30 and again slow down.
Or it'll stay at 30.
More often than not, it starts at 30-40 then will slow to 15-20.
On the laptop its a consistent 55-65 and stays there for the entire file.

You may want to disable the antivirus software for testing. With the ping not working it would seem like something is blocking the connection. Do the machines appear in the network folder under network?

Obviously you should make sure that Network Discovery and File and Printer sharing are turned on in the Advanced Sharing settings.

Make sure they are on the same Workgroup etc. and that file sharing is enabled through the sharing tab >Advanced Sharing> of the C:>Users folder.

Here is the deal. I am running Windows XP SP2 on my home tower (custom built). The tower is hardwired to a Linksys WRT54GS router. The tower does not have a wireless NIC. There are a few other computers that access this small network at various times.

The router is using WPA-PSK encryption. Wireless MAC address connectivity is enabled.

I bought an HP 1022NW Laserjet printer and tried connecting it to the wireless network using the enclosed getting started guide. I initially tried connecting it in ad hoc mode because I believe this is what I should use in my home office. No dice. Nothing was recognized. The only printing success I got was when I hooked an Ethernet cable directly to the router. After unplugging the cable, I had no luck printing wirelessly, even though I tried also configuring the installation for infrastructure mode, where the printer was recognized but still would not print once the cable was removed.

I have taken the printer's MAC address and added it as a trusted endpoint in both my router's configuration table and in my firewall (Norton Internet Security). However, that has also not helped.

Some advice I have read is making sure QoS is disabled on the router and also making sure that the SSID and pass key for the printer match that of the router. It should be easy to make these changes to the printer, but I cannot access the embedded web server in this printer to make these changes. Also, one source said to make sure the printer is on the sam... Read more

My computer has extremely slow download speeds, upload speeds are fine. Ping is always at ~10-20ms. (to Google) The problem has nothing to do with, my ISP, my router, my type of connection. I know this for a fact.

I've tried multiple network adapters. USB WiFi, integrated WiFi, connecting through another PC via ethernet, they all give the same result.

I'm guessing this is a problem with some software on the PC itself, as it seems to not be a hardware problem.

All other devices on the network have perfectly fine speeds, including Ethernet and WiFi connected devices.
I also cannot connect this PC to Ethernet, would take hours.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hi there, i was wondering if you could help me this problem i've been having for the past 3 days now. I recently downgraded from Vista to XP, and ever since then i've had download speeds of 5kb/s or less. Before now, i couldn't get onto anywebsites because it would time out, things like www.yahoo.com would take about 5 minutes to open properly. I did notice that when i was asked which partition to install XP on there was 2 sub partitions on the C drive for some reason. Anyway long story short, i managed to fix it by using the format option from booting the pc with the vista installation disk, then put xp in etc.
So, browsing speeds are normal for me, but i can't get on my online games because it just times out due to the slow download speeds, and anything large in size takes extremely long to download even with internet download manager, I've been waiting 10+ minutes for windows live messenger to finish downloading and installing and it still hasn't done so.
If you could have a look at my hijack this log and let me know what you see wrong it'd be much appreciated thanks.

My new HP laptop 15-ac114nx [Intel Core i3 @ 2.00GHz, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD] running Windows 10 64 bit has a serious wifi problem. Ever since I have bought the laptop Wifi internet speeds seem to be comparitively very slow on battery than when plugged in. I have a 20 Mbps connection which provides a reasonable browsing and download speed on all my other devices. The issue with this laptop is that when running on battery and connected using wifi even opening a webpage such as facebook or youtube takes an awfully lot of time lets say like 5 to 10 seconds and sometimes much more, whereas if I do the same with the power cord plugged in, the web pages appear as soon as I click their links(i.e. Vey Fast/Instantaneously).  To add further clarity to the situation I tested the download speed of a particular file while running on battery and with the cord plugged in. I started the download of a file [Java Development Kit ~ 160MB] using chrome with the cord plugged in and navigated to the chrome downloads page to monitor the download progress. The download speed was about 1000-1200 Kbps. Midway through the download I removed the power cord. Immediately the speeds dropped down to 20-30Kbps and sometimes even much lower.  After approximately 10 seconds I plugged the cord back in and wow the download speed went back up to approx a 1000 Kbps. After sometime I removed the cord again and as a result the speed dropped down again. Plugged the cord again and it rose back up. NOw this c... Read more

My laptop can no longer connect to my home network. It used to connect fine, but I was having problems with my graphics card as every time I went on Youtube it would crash. As a result, I sent it into ASUS (it is an ASUS K52J Series) and got the motherboard and the hard drive replaced. After this, my laptop seemed to be working great. It connected to a variety of networks, including 3 home networks, and 2 public networks. However, it cannot connect to the network in my apartment.

I know this network works and is connectable as my roommate's laptop works perfectly fine. So I know it is not a problem with my laptop since it connects to other networks, and I know it is not the network since other laptops connect to it. I've tried resetting my adapter, I've tried turning off the firewall, and I am simply out of ideas. Also, I've tried the trouble shooting option numerous times after trying a variety of things that usually fix the connectivity, but it always says that the problem cannot be detected.

Im having trouble with my newly aquired wireless router. Its a ZyXEL 660HW-D1.
It was working allright, but then after a power shortage, my clients can nolonger see the SSID/Network. And thus I can't connect to it.
Luckily there is no problem when I connect via the RJ45 cable, so it is indeed working.

I've tried everything from soft resets to resetting to factory defaults to reinstalling firmware. No luck ..

I've obviously also checked that it was broadcasting the SSID, and according to the interface, it is broadcasting fine. It is also sending packets .. but not recieving any. Presumably because noone can see it.

So im thinking that its a hardware failure. But then again .. it surely wouldnt be able to initialize the wireless module if it was fried. And there is no reason for or indication of fried components anywhere.

So basically Im hoping someone will tell me to enable broadcasting manually via console due to a known bug in the interface ... or something. :|

Ps. I have 3 different clients. A Vista pc with a pci wifi nic and a usb wifi, and a mac mini with airport, and last a PocketPC ( Dell axim ) .. and they can see lots of other SSIDs, just not mine

I hope someone can help me out ..
