Hi all, just trying to get up to speed on Wireshark, I want to see what's going on and why it ultimately fails.
The issue briefly mentioned is, I have a PC system with broadband being supplied by Virgin and a Home 120 modem attached to a Netgear WGT624 router, the PC functions fine and networking/internet is pretty much as it should be. When the Macbook connects wirelessly again internet and network are all good and signal strength is strong with a good channel selection, it does however have the odd connection drop. When the macbook tries to connect the kb's start to fall ultimately resulting in a download fail, but it also knocks out the internet for itself and the PC and only a router reboot gets it back. The file that is being downloaded is the Microsoft Office trial 2008 from Mactopia, but others also fail.
I think I'm going to need some help, I'm not sure which filters I need to apply to the macs airport to understand what's happening and how to read the information being given.
I think this is an interesting case, and would love to at the very least understand why its happening but would be great to solve the puzzle.
Kind regards Lee
