Default Re: Wireless Network Help

there are many different vendors for wireless chips: Intel, Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek, Ralink etc...

When you buy a wireless router, card, or laptop brand on top is just that a label, what you get inside depends.

Moral of the story is that not every combination will play nice with the rest.

sometimes a firmware update and or driver update might address a particular comp ability issue, sometimes you have to replace either the router or the wireless NIC.
