A question for our resident WLAN technicians/expert. I have a WLAN at home which is access control restricted (based on MAC addressess) and WEP-key protected (my Access Point only has WEP).
My old laptop has a PCMCIA WLAN card and works fine withe Access Point. Now my new laptop has a built-in WLAN card and here the oddity begins. I get a connection to the AP and have good reception and everything. However, when I, let's say, want to load a.net there is no traffic between the new laptop and the AP; hence, the site loads very slowly or gets a timeout. These timeouts make it impossible for me to use SSH to my remote server.
I tested the laptop in a different WLAN (a public one), and it works flawlessly there. Thus, I don't think the built-in WLAN card is faulty.
It's really weird. Anyway, I am turning here to see if maybe some of you have an idea what the trouble might be.
