Hey,

the wireless network on my notebook allows me to surf on the internet for a certain amount of time (which varies), but then all of a sudden a message pops up that the wireless network i was using seconds ago is now available. meaning that im not connected to it anymore but could do so. if i click on connect it works again almost immediately. and it actually says that the connection is good. so i dont see why it should lose it.
any thoughts?
thank you

You could possibly have a driver that 'works' with your wireless card but doesn't necessarily work well with it. I suggest you go to your wireless cards manufacturer's website and download the latest drivers for it.

If I remember correctly, ALL wireless components MUST accept interference from certain devices. I'd see if there isn't something around the router (900MHz Phones are notorious for it) that could be causing a problem.

This happens on my home network on a wireless system downstairs that consistently has "Low" signal strength. I will get periodic balloon msgs that tell me my wireless is "Now Connected", but haven't actually lost the connection until I get the "Low connectivity" icon. IMO, I think it's more of a delay in the communications between the wireless card and the router upstairs.

And just for the record, Wireless routers do NOT use 900mhz, they run on 2.4ghz, so if you have a microwave oven running or a 2.4ghz phone in use, you will experience connectivity issues on your wireless

hey,

besides this laptop the network connection works fine on every other pc (yay, the "no connection" sign just popped up again!!).

i`ll try the thing with the driver, could there be anything else? could my laptop just be broken?

thanks
