So this is a long story. I have OpenSuSE 10.1 Remastered on my computer. I have
an ipw3945 chip in my computer. I have HORRIBLE range with it. MY computer is an
MSI 1034 btw, one of those whitebooks, build it yourself things. Anyways, this 5
ft range really began to bug me so I ordered a new card, thinking that maybe the
card is defective. I had the same exact problem. I decided to use a PCMCIA card
from Linksys with the Broadcom 4318 drivers. Still no luck. I began to notice
something though, my wireless is controlled by a button on the shell of my
computer. when the button is off, wireless stops working COMPLETELY. Neither the
Linksys nor the Intel wireless works, When I turn it on, it works... but with
horrible range. Could it be a problem with my setup? I figure that there is
something with my computer's way of handling wireless devices all together.
Anyone have any idea on how I can imporve my wireless? Thanks all.
