  • Wifi question

    Can someone tell me why my computer detects a strong wifi signal and is unable to connect while my phone and ipad says that particular wifi is out of range or one bar?

    Thanks.

    OS is XP?

      Win 7. Is there a patch for that, fix of some kind.

        Because your phone and iPad have tiny little antennas and very low-powered receivers. The placement of your hands on the device affects how they receive signals as well. Your PC is not encumbered by any of that. Big antenna(s), lots of power and you aren't bear-hugging it while it works. Wrong password or wrong security settings will prevent it from connecting.

          It has nothing to do with incorrect passwords. And it is not security settings because when the other devices picks up the signal perfectly...when coloser to the signals, the computer locks without issue. What else? Or bug fixes?

            install an other wlan card or a better antenna.
