We are at Karpaz Gate Marina in Northern Cyprus
I had a problem with our main computer and its external USB WiFi
adapter receiving the marina's WiFi
signal. I had no problem with my Apple iTouch receiving the signal. I have been trying lots of things and finally opted to replace the WiFi adapter with a spare. My old USB WiFi adapter was bought in the US 5 or 6 years ago and the spare bought in the US about 1-2 years ago.
Magically, the new USB WiFi adapter found the marina's access point. I looked a little closer and determined that the marina's access point is using channel 13. This is a new channel and generally not used in the US because of low power
restrictions placed on the channel. I assume my older WiFi adapter was not made to receive channel 13.
Now, here is my problem. For some strange reason Airmail will not send/receive with the new WiFi adapter. It tries unsuccessfully to connect to winlink and sailmail while at the same time every browser and every other program uses the Internet
connection with no problems. Hmmm, if it is not one thing it is another. Ideas and complaints would be appreciated.
So, there you are folks...one more thing to think about. It is beer-thirty here in Cyprus
, so that is it for the day.
