Blasted Dell 6400 does not do wifi too well. It keeps dropping the signal. I upgraded the Intel wifi management software, but had the pc’s fan go mad because the Intel software put something in my pc which kept the cpu working away far too hard, and it got so hot and bothered that another memory parity error reared its confusing head. I’ve dumped the Intel stuff, except for the wifi card driver, but I had a little problem getting the software off my pc. I had to open the task manager and shut down the Intel zero configuration .exe file before the uninstall would complete. This it not something I like doing.
For the moment all seems to be OK, although under Windows wifi management the wifi signal is still intermittently being dropped. My access point works fine, though, as my Dell pocket pc picks up and holds a signal until its battery runs down. Just as well I had the pocket PC, I might well have changed the access point by now, if it was not for its ability to latch on to and maintain the wifi connection.
Hi-tech, don’t you just love it sometimes! Not.
