Hi, I have my computer hook up to a wireless modem with WEP via usb adapter. I have connection but after a while I lose connection then I have to repair the connection eventhough the modem is reading excellent connection. Mean while my sisters computer never loses connection with the modem. I think the problem is with my adapter but I can seem to fix the problem. Can someone please lend a helping hand.

Thanks, all.

Hi reggaemusicman,

Please goto Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Network Connections --> Right-click your Connection and select Properties --> Click on the Authentication tab --> Disable / uncheck the option IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network. Restart your computer and then see if you still get disconnected.

Please goto Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Network Connections --> Right-click your Wireless Connection --> Select Properties --> Press the Configure... button, next to your NIC --> Select the Power Management tab --> Ensure the option Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. is unchecked. Restart your computer and see if you still lose connection.
