When there is more than one wireless@sg service provider near you

OK, I promised that I will stop shooting wireless@sg so frequently ever since I got my Singnet Mobile Broadband. But sometimes when I’m lazy to take out the modem and wireless@sg never to fail me.

I’m now at Marina Square Starbucks. Here is the problem. Starbucks’ wireless@sg service provider is Singtel. There is another iCell wireless@sg network nearby. I think it’s from McDonalds.

So I login to the Singtel wireless@sg. After using the internet for awhile, I got disconnected from the Singnet wireless@sg for no reason and got connected to the iCell wireless@sg. (Since all 3 service provider are using wireless@sg as the router name) And I need to re-login to the iCell wireless@sg. And after awhile, I got disconnected from iCell wireless@sg for no reason again and got connected to the Singtel wireless@sg. And to make things worst, I need to re-login to Singtel wireless@sg AGAIN. And this thing goes on and on and on.

HELLO! What the heck is wrong with wireless@sg? Why do I keep getting disconnected? And the 3 wireless@sg service provider really should wake up their idea. It’s time they start sharing their database and not make users login multiple times when they switch between wireless@sg router. And why do I have to re-login to wireless@sg Singtel/iCell after I was disconnected when I login 5 minutes ago?

Anyone from wireless@sg reading this? Or you guys having difficulties connecting to wireless@sg too?

I’m logging off. Have enough of all these crap.

    Actually, you could make it harder for your wireless adapter to jump networks by tuning the adapter settings. As for me, I can’t be bothered to change the settings, so it’s up the mobile broadband for me!

    pkchukiss: The thing is, both networks are named wireless@sg. Is there a way to make it harder to auto jump network that are same name?

    Wireless@SG seems to lose its steam nowadays. Have you try Citylink? There is this coffee near the entrance of the MRT station, it puts up a sign saying that it has free WIFI (wireless@sg, no doubt). The great thing is that there is not enough signal (one red bar – got signal super weak).

    I think that the service providers are not using good acess points that can let the signals go far and wide. These resturants (or whatever) have access points with just enough power to cover their own area.

    I get the exact same problem whenever there’s an icell provider too. Mobile broadband is the best. Solves all!
