Wi-fi Problem Specifically To One Device ...

#1
Our router is in the lounge attached with an ethernet cable to the TV digibox (which works fine). All the other devices in our house connect via wi-fi.

My laptop has an excellent connection with good speeds, but my Mac Mini's connection keeps dropping with slow speeds?

Any suggestions from anyone as to how I can solve the problem with the Mac Mini please?

Depends upon how old the Mini is. Is the card b/g/n? Maybe a usb WiFi dongle is in your future?
Are there metal walls between the Mini & the router?

Did you try the trick by open System Preferences->Network pane and then select you airport card. Then at the top of the page is Location toggle bar. Select a custom name and make a new Location and apply that. Lastly rejoin your wireless network.

See if this helps!

It's a while since I had a MacMini. But we did have a problem when I installed an Airport card. I thought it was in the slot OK, but it wasn't. The card needed a very hard push to click it into place correctly. I thought I was going to break something!
