I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2 on a Toshiba Satellite with an 1.2 GHz Celeron. I am using a D-Link DWL-G650 Airplus Xtreme G Wireless Adapter. Also, there are two linked wireless routers. The router I have my connection off of branches off from the other, which is connected through a Voip Gateway to our cable modem. There are 3 other computers that use this network (3 wireless, 1 desktop connected directly to the first wireless router), and none of the others seem to be experiencing my problem. Oh, and there is an XBox hardlined to the router I am using.
Now, I can go to UCF and my internet functions normally. Outlook, AIM, IE (6.02900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158), everything works as it is supposed to, without interruption.
When I return home, though, the connection works intermittently. Sometimes the connection will be fine for hours, and then it will last less than a minute repeatedly. But, I never receive notice of my connection being lost. The D-Link software claims I have good signal strength, and windows tells me that I am transferring at 108.0 Mbps with excellent signal strength, but Outlook won't be able to connet, IE will not connect, AIM gets disconnected, and I either have to wait some seemingly arbitrary amount of time or I have to disconnect from and reconnect to the wireless network. Also, the first router on the network is transmitting wireless b, and the one I am (a D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DI-624) on is transmitting wireless g only. I can't get the number from the wireless b router right now. It is also a D-Link, as well as the Voip Gateway.
Also, I am running Ad-Aware and Microsoft Anti-Spyware. I don't know if either of those might cause this problem. Norton Antivirus hasn't picked anything up either, and Anti-Spyware and Ad-Aware also claim to have removed everything from my comp. (I have deleted the quarantined files.)
I don't know if you need any other information. Also, this is set up to be a DHCP network, si I don't think I have an IP Address conflict (windows hasn't complained recently, and I renewed my IP address anyway, to no avail).
