my dell laptop needs halp again :(
« on: February 05, 2008, 11:04:35 AM »

So.... before ringing customer service, I'll ask for help here :D

(It's the same laptop as the one i had a problem with a while ago)

The laptop uses Intel PROSet/Wireless for its wireless networks (model 3945ABG), and these couple of days it's started stuffing up a bit.  After one hour of use or so, it decides to disconnect from my network, and when I try to reconnect, mr error box pops up saying "Problem applying profile!".  Deleting/remaking profile doesn't work.  Rebooting works though.  Searching internets and such, there was stuff on updating a driver, or there was a hardware problem and stuff is overheating... I'm installing new driver right now, and if it still doesn't work, I'm going to try checking the stuff inside it tomorrow.  Does anyone have a better idea?

afaik, my wireless network is working find on ubuntu, so maybe its a software issue? meh, i never stay on ubuntu long enough to resist the urge of ren or some other game :P

Actually, the problem sounds like there is a 2.47GHz phone nearby that is interfering with your wireless connectivity.  Got any cordless phones?  If so, are they 2.4GHz?

well updated driver last night, kept network on all night, nothings happened yet, i'm at my cousin's and i'll leave it on for a while and see what happens

I have a cordless phone nearby yes.. (well had), but that doesn't seem to be the problem, I always kept one near there, also, I tried different spots and it didn't work there too

I had a similar problem with my wireless when I was first trying to get it working. Like you mentioned, it would periodically drop out. Turns out the problem was with my router, not laptop or nearby cordless phone. Apparently I had it set to the wrong channel (channel 7, I think). To fix, I had to change it to channel 1, but first change the mode to "g and b" which supports channel 1 - whereas the previous mode didn't. Who knows if this is even remotely similar to the problem you're having.

like i said, it works fine on linux, and rebooting isn't a long term solution, e.g. "woo i'm about to nuke" and "dammit my wireless dropped out", or "YAY I GOT INTO SRO IN TRAFFIC!" then "CRUD I NEEDA REBOOT" :P

well it seemed to work after updating the program itself :S might be intel's fault
