I have a Linksys b PCMIA in my wife's Dell laptop (W98). It is probably about three years or so old. The wireless router BEFW11S4 and I got the two together as a package. The Router is in my desk in my office and the laptop is on the desk in the kitchen (same floor about 50 feet away). Over the last week or so, when we turn her laptop on, it doesn't find the access point (always did before) and when you profile the area, it doesn't see anything. HOwever, if I take the laptop to my office, it finds the access point in the profile and I can then hook up and get access point and internet. When I walk the laptop back to where it goes, it stays connected to both access and internet. Needless to say, this walking it back and forth is getting old. Any suggestions? BTW: I can take my MacBook into the kitchen and it picks up the access point with no problem.
