Slow/broken wifi on D620 (with Dell 1390 card)


Recommended Posts

I'm running 10.6.6 with EDP 1.6 Final (NVIDIA graphics). The internal wifi card is Dell 1390, and I also tried it with an external USB adapter, Alfa AWUS036NH. In either case, I am able to successfully connect to a wireless network and get an IP address. However, when I try to load a webpage, I typically get a timeout/site not found/host not reachable error. On the rare occasions when I am able to get a site to load, it takes an extremely long time (> 60 seconds for google.com).


Has anyone else run into this issue? I would normally suspect a bad wifi card, but in this case I have identical symptoms with the external USB adapter. Suggestions?
