Hi I was wondering what is the most common reason for not receiving packets over a linksys wireless network. I have a good connection through my airport extreme card (3 bars) and when I look under network utility I have a valid IP address and my comp is sending out packets and initially I receive some packets. My ibook starts sending packets out and the numbers get to Sent Packets 78 and Received Packets 24. Now the receving packets go up from 0-18 real fast as they should then peter out the last couple of packets at an ever so slow rate of like 1 packet per 10 seconds or so then it stops altogether. At that point I receive no more packets whatsoever and I cannot even load a single page with this little of information received. The linksys support page isn't very informative since they pretty much say they don't do any Mac support and don't really care to either. I went into my network settings and changed my IP using manual DCHP into one digit higher in the last range of numbers and when I apply that network utility shows me that I start to receive packets again up to the same amount pretty much and it stops receiving packets again in the same way (slowgoing until it stops completely). Here are my computer specs: 12" ibook G4 800mhz proc 640megs of ram OS X 10.3.8 Oh btw this is a public network so I don't have access to the router itself and it's not password protected (I'm at a coffee shop but the baristas don't know what the problem is). So it shows me on the network just fine but unable to use it. ?? Anyone have any ideas? Thanks a lot.
