GLTurn57 Posted November 27, 2009 CID Report Share Posted November 27, 2009 Hello all, Signed up to hopefully find an answer to a problem I'm having. Here's my situation: Have Alltel Wireless Internet using a Huawei EC168 USB card. On my laptop, a Gateway P-7805u FX the signal strength is very erratic and download speeds are very slow. The signal jumps around a lot. It may start out EVDO rev-A 100% then the next second it'll be RTTx1 say 40% (it varies each time), then back to EVDO say 92%. Download speeds are anywhere from around 140 kbps to no more than 900 kbps. It's like this 99% of the time. If it happens to stay at EVDO rev-A for more than several seconds when I try to load a page or download it'll drop down again. I don't have this problem on my desktop. It's always EVDO rev-A 100% signal with download speeds of 1000 to 1300 kbps. The desktop was running XP 32-bit, the laptop Vista 64-bit. I upgraded both to Windows 7 64-bit. I hoped upgrading the OS on the laptop would fix this but it didn't. I use Firefox. Just updated to v3.5.5. Any help would be appreciated.
