I have a Fujitsu-Siemens S6120 Lifebook Notebook that has problems holding on to the 802.11b signal from my Netgear 54Mbit Wireless ADSL Router (model no DG834G).

I also have a Dell Inspiron 500m with the same wireless technology (Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter) and this has no problem holding the signal from any location in my house.

My question is - is the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter faulty on the S6120 or can you suggest any other area to investigate?

I thought your Fujitsu has Centrino with built-in wireless?

Both have the same Centrino technology - "Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI Adapter" is how the device manager displays the device.

Caught me editing......:o

No definitive answer yet. I am looking here (http://www.dslreports.com/forum/netgear) right now.

I have not found an answer yet, there was a entry where someone said the Fujisu turned off the wireless in the BIOS after 3 days though, complained about being unstable.

What I found, is you have to establish the connection while you are close to the access point and then it will hold the connection. Also when you loose the connection, is there a software utility that lets you restore the connection? Does it work or do you have to re-boot.

Have you tried a different frequency, maybe the Fujitsu performs better at a different frequency.
