The laptop stays connected for about 2 minutes, then it disconnects. When I search for networks it can't find anything. You have to restart the laptop to get it to connect again.
My router is WEP enabled and I have 4 other computers connected to the network one being a XBOX 360. All of which I've never had a single problem with. I even switched the router to WPA and it does the same thing.
This laptop is Vista and all my other pc's are XP. I guess it has something to do with Vista. As I've never had any problems with my other computers. One actually being a laptop.
I managed to update the realtek RTL8187B wireless network adapter before it disconnected. It still does the same thing.
Even when I take the Ethernet cable out of my router and plug it in directly into the laptop nothing happens. My aunty brought her Vista computer to my house to update and add some programs. I plugged the Ethernet cable into her pc and it connected to the internet straight away. No need to mess around with any settings.
Any help would be very appreciated.
