for everyone having problems with wlan connection, i spent the best part of 20mins on the phone to the tech guy,s (£1.50 per min) what a set of morons, no advise or fix other than well have it collected and returned (14 days) turn round.
well tonight i ran fujitsu-seimens help line, problem solved in 2 mins, change your router settings, chanel 1-6 work best for fujitsu-seimens, change encription to wep from wpa, reset router, make new connection on laptop, using the above, heypresto!!!!! full signal every where in the house.

Im glad your laptop is now working, however for some strange reason mine isnt.. take a look at this list and prepared to be amazed (and confused)

Got an Li1718 for crimbo

Set it up

WIFI card see's EVERYTHING connects to NOTHING

re-installed Vista

re-installed WIFI drivers

reset my router (to no encryption)

changed router channel (to channel 4 then 6 then 1 then 3)

disabled VISTA firewall (just to be sure)

called fujistu told them what i'd done they said it must be a dogey card


so i took it back to the shop got it swaped for another Li1718

went through all of the above steps again - and i still have no wireless..

oh by the way I installed a USB wireless antenna (this has no effect at all)

i'll said it before and i'll say it again

what have you set the bps to, i find that if i try from 54bps and work down, i found a setting that works fine, it won't connect at 54 but it see the wireless network.
if i can help any further, drop me a line, hope you didn't buy from pcworld, as there is not siemens warranty on there products.
