Thought some of the smart people around here might be able to help me out. Staying in a hotel in Amsterdam and using the internet to find places to go, etc, but the connection has been dropping out on me... a lot. Sometime it stays connected for as many as fifteen seconds! Obviously I can't get access to the router, but I'm hoping that maybe I can change some settings on my end that will help me stay connected (assuming that it's the potentially-hundreds of other devices in the hotel that are the issue here).
When connecting initially Firefox redirects to a website where I have to QWI Hotspot website where I need to login before I can start browsing.
When it drops out I can right-click on the wireless network, hit status, then diagnose and it will usually fix it. Hoping it doesn't mean my Atheros AR938x wireless network adapter is on the fritz - the laptop is under warranty, but I won't be back in Australia for months, and as I understand it warranties are usually restricted to the country of purchase.
Be happy to provide any more information if need be.
