My daughter's Acer Aspire 4736Z-4201 notebook gets too weak wireless router signal strength and sometimes it fails completely, even with no other computer connected to the network. It happens under the same conditions where mine and my wife's notebooks get from normal to good to excellent signal strength, with two walls as barriers at a distance of a few meters. The Acer notebook only gets good to excellent signal strength when there is no barrier, that is, when it's near the router.
I've updated all its drivers
with DriverMax Pro (Acer's web site isn't of much help for that, 'cause the latest drivers there are from April 2010). But TNA.
I think the problem might be the wireless card, so I ask you to please help me find a way to check it out, perhaps using some kind of software. I want to try this before taking the notebook to tech support.
If you have some suggestion on how to solve that, I'll appreciate you letting me know.
TIA for any help.
