Greetings forum people. I am having a trouble that I haven't seen specifically addressed elsewhere in the forums. I appologize if it has been covered already. I have a connection that I pay for from an internet company that provides Wifi via access points around the town that I live in. I have been unable to maintain a stable connection on my new laptop. It works fine on a Macbook and some other machines in the household. I am generally able to connect the majority of the time and shows at least three bars, but after maybe ten to thirty minutes connectivity is lost. If I do an IPCONFIG /RELEASE RENEW it tends to repair the problem but then it is lost again, eventually. The machine has an INTEL PRO WIRELESS 3945 ABG Wireless card - standard for the chipset I suppose. The computer has Windows Vista. I've tried an update of the driver from Intel but Windows Vista said it didn't like the drivers I gave it. I am at a loss. If anybody has any good advice please let me know. Thank you very much in advance. Regards, Jacob.
