I call this a nuisance because the fix is relatively easy but to me seems entirely unnecessary.

Basically, every now and again my PC tells me that my wireless connection has been lost. I look at the icon in my tray and it usually shows three out of four bars but with the little exclamation point. I right click on the wireless icon in the tray and click on "repair" and it goes through its disable/enable process and the connection is back.

I am using the Rangebooster G router (WBR-2350, firmware 1.04) and the G wireless usb (WUA-2350). I am just not sure why the connection gets lost so frequently; usually about 5 to 6 times per day. It doesn't seem to be an actual loss of signal, just a disconnect, because I still see three or four bars of signal.

Any thoughts on why this would be happening?

You need to update the firmware of your router. I think this will fix the issue . also try changing the channel number to 7 9 10. In orfder to download firmware you need to go to manufacturers website.

Hmmm. Thought I had already updated the firmware. Nonetheless, it's been about 36 hours since I updated to version 1.5 and haven't had a single disconnection yet.

Thanks for pointing out the oversight, pcs365_11.

OK, back to the old drawing board.

Connection was good for a bit but now it's disconnecting and hanging at ip renewal. Resetting the router seems to work but is more of a pain that repairing the connection.

Firmware 1.05 seems to be a dud. Other than that, any other ideas would be appreciated.
