I have a Linksys Wireless-G 2.4ghz broadband router and a USB Network
The router is connected to a PC on the first floor of my apartment and
the Adapter on a PC on the second floor. Both PCs are running WinXP.
After installing the router and adapter and running the software on
the respective PCs, I try to connect and get the "Reaching access
point but unable to connect to the Internet" message.
I've tried to release and renew the IP address but get an error
message saying unable to connect. So I took the second PC and
reassembled it on the same floor as the PC with the router.
I was able to get the second PC connected to the Internet but took it
back to the second floor and had the same problems. I tried switching
the channels but no help.
The second PC is located almost above the wireless router but on the
other side of the house; probably 15-20 feet overall.
Am I missing something in the set-up or is the distance too far?
Wireless signals don't penetrate ceilings/floors terribly well.
Consider powerline networking instead.
