I recently moved and did not get my own internet access yet as I'm trying to use one of the unsecure connections in the area. Being I have Directv, Comcast wants $60.95 a month for internet access sans tv service, so they can suck a fat one. Verizon DSL is $39.95 a month sans home phone service with a $35 charge for the modem, pro-rated first month and another month paid up front for a total of around $150. Blah. Anyway.... There are two non-encrypted signals near me that are both linksys routers. One connection is always weaker than the other, however, the stronger connection simply doesn't work a lot of the time. The weaker connection always works, but the signal is so weak it's sometimes sub-56k speeds. My wireless adapter's utility program is constantly switching back and forth between the two connections, and I am unable to force it to stay on just one even after adding that connection to my profile - I assume this is because the SSID is "linksys" for both of them. What can I do to get a better signal or keep them from switching? I am running windows 2000 professional, a pci wireless-G card with a 1 1/2 foot wire that goes from the card to the antenna. I have tried positioning the antenna in every possible spot as far as the wire will allow. Would having a better quality MIMO wireless adapter do anything to help, or would the routers also have to be MIMO? Shitty internet connections suck!
