I am at my wits end and for all my searching I can't seem to resolve this problem on my own. I have a brand new Laptop PC.
Dell Inspiron 9600, Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002, Service Pack 2
T2500 CPU @ 2.00 Ghz 998 Mhz, 1.00 GB RAM
My wireless connection keeps dropping.
I have disabled the Intel ProSetWireless manager software and only the windows manager is running. Not only does it drop for no particular reason that I can see (sometimes it is every minute, sometimes every few seconds, sometimes I can go a whole 15 minutes) it is also quite slow and I'm beginning to feel like I am on a dial-up, not on a cable connection. I can't seem to have more than one webpage open at a time.
No other computer in the house is on or running at the moment but all three were working fine. The router being used is a Linksys.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: After hours of finagling and driver updates and wondering why this one laptop computer in the entire house that has two others working fine wasn't cooperating, I changed the channel on the router from 6 to 11 and now the connection is working properly and a itty bitty download doesn't take two hours (no lie). I am guess this computer is a lot more powerful and was being feisty about interference so channel six wasn't good enough for it. Figures it would be the last thing I try.
