I am on a college campus that went Wireless. From my dorm room, I can
see the SSID for the campus, however I cannot connect properly. There
is apparently damaged fiber optic line running from the closest antenna
to the relevant campus systems.
What happens when I try to connect is I get a high number of sent
packets with none recieved. The system slowly (~1 minute) assigns an IP
address, and subnet mask, but not (and never) a default gateway, DNS or
My computer does work on the network on other parts of campus, so I'm
pretty sure that it's just this particular antenna I am having problems
Is there a way to select between different antennas (physical
addresses?) broadcasting the same SSID?
I am on Win 2k2 Pro SR 2 w/ Dell TrueMobile 1150 series Wireless
I'll take a slow connection that works over one that does not at all...
I apologize for any incorrect use of terms & jargon...and thank you for
