2 laptops. 1 connects to wi-fi...

Hi.

One of my laptops refuses/is very difficult to connect to my home wi-fi. The other one, in the same room, connects instantly and shows "full strength" signal.

One is an HP, one is a Dell. How do I slap some sense into the problem child?

What is the operating system on the machine that connects?
What is the operating system on the machine that does not connect?
What happens if you swap the two machines locations? (Signal strength)

It would be more beneficial to use the same member name when responding in a thread.
It is also against DIY forum rules to have two member names.

So you're going to have to pick the user name you want to keep. One of them will have to be banned.

Busted. Is this a felony, or misdemeanor?

It's a rule, so pick a name or I'll pick it for you.

It's not important. You may choose.
