Hi guys.
I have a strange problem regarding my wireless network. Every so often my network adapter disconnects, and reconnects itself.I am using a netgear router and usb connector. When it "re-activates" I find that I have to open the "netgear smart wizard" to have it scan and reconnect to the network and restore access. Have there been other instances of this and is there anything I can do about it? My gaming is beginning to suffer severely :)

Thanks a lot

I would try uninstalling the software, then uninstall the wireless network adaptor and then reinstall the network adapter and software and see if that fixes your problem.

I would also look for the latest drivers.

I know that sounds basic, but sometimes basic is the answer :)
