Do you have any problems picking up other Wi-Fi routers at all?

In this case if it is intermittent I would try running a repair Via PC Companion. Simply open PC Companion > Click on Support Zone > Click Update Software > Follow the prompts.

I'm having wi-fi problem as well. When i tried to scan wi-fi connection, it shows my neighbours' wifi routers, but not the router in my house. Does not appear at all.

Wifi network from my house works well with other devices.

Could not try to connect to neighbours' network since they're password protected. Juz bought this unit about 2 weeks ago.

Very strange cuz logically, closest router should show strongest signal.

=(

That sounds more like a router configuration conflict I hate to say. What make of router do you have?

Sam-SEanswers

my wifi router is provided by my broadband service itself..

it actually works on a static ip

and i've already saved my ip settings but it discovers only few times..

when discovered it works fine and fast!
