Is it possible that my Droid2 is interfering with my laptop's connection to the wireless router?
For a few months now, I've been having intermittent problems connecting my laptop to my office's wireless router. I don't have these problems with my home wireless router, and nobody else in the office has problems with the office router. I'll go for days or weeks with no problem at all, and then, for no apparent reason, my laptop drops its connection to the wireless router. Sometimes, the connection will bounce up and down for hours on end. (Massively frustrating!)
I haven't been able to detect any pattern, but I may have found something today. Or maybe not. Over the last two days, I've noticed that whenever the connection has dropped, my Droid2 is sitting right next to my laptop, and in a direct line between the laptop and the wireless router. Could the Droid2 be interfering with the signal between my laptop and the router? Or is it just a coincidence?
The Droid does NOT have wireless enabled. I usually have that disabled to preserve battery strength.
The laptop wireless card is a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card.
The router is a relatively new Cisco router. I don't have the model number handy, but can find it if anyone thinks it's relevant.
I'd appreciate your comments - this has been driving me crazy!
