I have a feeling it may be some setting that is stored in memory somewhere
when you move outside your personal network environment. The exact same
thing happens to me 100% of the time when I move between airports, home and
the office. With the airports and home the wireless adapter picks up the
internet immediately. At the office, 100% of the time it gives me limited or
no connectivity. But hold on ... here's what I've found. Just leave it alone
for about 5 to 10 minutes and don't worry about it. It appears to flush its
cache or whatever out itself and (possibly some cycle) connects thereafter.
Every so often it will drop its connection but picks it up again after a
Right now, curiously enough, as I type this the connection is 'lost'. But I
don't worry, it will come back itself :-)
If there's somebody who can tell me how to make the office wireless connect
like the airports and my home, that would be great!
BTW ... it takes me the same amount of waiting time at the office, while
trying to connect to our LAN ... I don't know why.
