Is there another device in the house that you can use to check the signal? If you can reliably log into the Router with a phone, desktop, iPad, etc, then that would isolate the fault to the laptop. (I seem to recall that you don't have a Smartphone.) What about a plug-in WiFi Adaptor? Failing that I don't know how to diagnose this unless there is someone who could stand outside and login on their device. -- Terry Coles -- Next meeting: Online, Jitsi, Tuesday, 2021-03-02 20:00 Check to whom you are replying Meetings, mailing list, IRC, ... http://dorset.lug.org.uk New thread, don't hijack: mailto:email@example.com
