I got a new Dell Inspirion 14z the other day and it has been on and off connecting to my wifi. Tonight specifically I have had a total connection failure and it only seems to be able to connect and remain stable for a prolonged period when I set the router to unsecured (not wep or wpa) I know this connection works because I have 4 other laptops some smartphones, and a wii, all running on it fine. What could cause this?
The router is a netgear wireless-n 150 (seen here)
I have it set to WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] currently and have tried changing that to both WPA-PSK [TKIP], and WPA2-PSK [AES] btut nothing seems to work unless I just turn security off all together. sometimes just simply unplugging the router and waiting 30 seconds resolves the issue but not tonight.
