    hi
    i have a new toshiba laptop t-230
    the wireless connection, does connect if the signal with the router is excellent or very good. if we count it with the signal green lines, it connects only wen the strength is 4-5 lines.
    if is lower, even 3 (good signal) or 2 lines (fair signal) it wont connect. If i connect normally with excellent signal and move in another room with good signal, it still disconnects. my other 4 laptops and iphone in the house work fine.

    1. i have uninstalled the drivers and put new ones.. same thing
    2. i have formated the laptop but still no luck.
    3. i have put a usb wireless card and it is working fine.

    it seems that there is an issue with my atheros AR9285 card. can I ask from toshiba to replace the network card? is there anything else i havent tried?

    thanks in advance

    Well, I think you hit the drivers, and another NIC works, so I'd have them replace it, seems like we're running out of other possibilities.
