How can I test my netbook's wifi receiver/transmitter, to eliminate it as a possibility in some network problems?
I'm attacking the problem from the other end (here and here), and it's looking as if the solution is probably to get a wifi extender. (The dropouts go away when I get close to the transmitter -- I think -- and the other wifi user isn't having problems.)
However, I'd hate to drop some money and then find out I hadn't fixed the problem.
Is there a way to run some tests on the hardware, without buying anything (or very much) to completely eliminate the netbook as a culprit?
The netbook is an Asus Eee PC running Windows 7 Starter.
