I'm sure I'm not the only one, but my Linksys, as most of them do, came preset to channel 6. Well the Dell wireless cards will connect to it, but not pull an IP address due to firmware issues. I even tried a replacement card a week after I got it, just to be sure. India, of course, didn't have a clue. Finally I switched my Linksys to Channel 1 and BAM it works. That's great as long as I don't need to use it somewhere else where "they" are channel 6.
Any thoughts on how to rectify this on the system?
