Wireless Disconnection

I'm on a wireless network, and I've got trouble with either my wireless card or the settings for it. It's unlikely to be the card as the problem affects two other people in my house. Two further people's connections are fine, both connected normally.

My problem is this: The wireless hardware connects to the WAN but invariably cuts out every 5 minutes. When connected, it sports a 'not connected' legend in the corner of the wireless network connection window. I have tried to guess the problem, but my limited knowledge is...well, limited. I thought that it may be an SSID problem, mainly because the SSID has no set value on the Wireless card properties.

This is a major problem, as I have to supervise all downloads to reconnect continuously. No-one I know seems to know what is wrong either, even the more technologically competent of them. Feedback will be showered with blessings, however much you can offer.

Hello 1337learner and welcome to G2G, :tazz:

I need a little additional information to ascertain whether or not I will be able to assist you, in correcting your problem.

Please Answer the following questions:

1) What operating System's do you have on the PC's in question, Please include any Windows Updates or Patches (Example... XP SP1 or 2)?

2) What is the Model and Manufacturer of the Wireless Adapter / Card currently Installed on your problematic PC?

3) What is the Model and Manufacturer of the Wireless Router you are using?

4) Are you using the software that came with your wireless adapter to manage your connectivity to the router, or if using XP are you using the Wireless Zero Configuration (referred to as WZC)?

5) What IP Configuration are you using (Example.. DHCP, PPoE / Static, Automatic)

6) What troubleshooting steps have you taken already?
