Amilo Li 1718 running Vista - WLAN connection problems

Postby Darth Amilo » Mon Oct 22, 2007 1:57 pm

Hi

Basically, my Amilo does not "see" my wireless network (Netgear) - WEP is enabled and I use channel 13, and this works fine on another computer using a Belkin wireless adapter. However, if I drop WEP and drop down a few channels on the router the Amilo does see my network but can't connect.

If I disable the Amilo WLAN, and install a Belkin wireless adapter, I can connect to the internet OK.

Can anyone offer a solution as to why I can't connect to my wireless network using the Amilo WLAN? Is is something to do with Atheros??

Any help much appreciated.

Dont know if its the same problem but my Amilo Li1818 wouldnt detect any networks on bootup. Requiring me to repair every time i booted. The problem is that Vista turns off the wireless capability, then doesnt turn it on.

The way i fixed it.. Go to control panel. Device manager. Find the wireless device and goto properties. On one of the tabs there is an option for Vista to turn off the device to save power or something similar. I disabled that and now it works fine.

Of course if thats not your problem this will be no help at all :)
