been with the same set up before. i just added a password (for the wireless) and then that was when i encountered this problem--the connection lasts only for around half an hour then disconnects and i cannot repair it or whatever. i usually turns off the computer to reboot and reconnect.

there is a forum for wireless hardware/software, you might want to pm a mod to see if they can move this post there. At worst go read some of the existing posts and seeif you cant get a grip on the problem, This site is real good someone will have a fix for you.

Please give details, including hardware makes and models

What happens if you disable the password in the router?

Does your card come with a wireless utility? If so, did you disable Wireless zero configuration service?

start > run
services.msc
<enter>

scroll down, double click.
hit stop
set startup type to DISABLED

reboot

thanks! i solved the problem already...my computer prioritizes a different wireless network (instead of my own wireless network; i think it's my neighbour's) in connecting to the internet and that's when i get the problem.
