I have been having an issue the past few months where I have a very intermittent connection to my wireless network on my desktop. it will go from working just fine to "unable to connect to wireless network" and I'll have to repair the connection. this seems to be increasing in frequency and now happens several times a day.

All drivers are up to date and the router is w/in 15feet of the desktop and wireless adapter, with no obstructions. I've tried both winsockfix and EvID4226Patch with no success. all virus scans and adware scans come back clean. any help you can offer would be appreciated

Thanks Gentoolink,

I read through that thread, but nothing seemed to really make a difference. I'm using WZC instead of the software supplied by the wireless card mfg.
