I have a Panasonic CF-Y2 with a Pentium M processor and an Intel 2200 BG Pro/Wireless internal wireless adaptor .. on the networking side I have a Linksys wireless access point ..

When I step into my living room, the laptop loses the connection 80% of the time, notwithstanding the fact that my other two laptops (Dell and Sony) have no trouble maintaining a connection at all, and that I can see the signal is relatively strong (4 bars out of 5) .. but while the Intel dialog box can see the network and indicates good strength, when i click on connect (which it prompts me to do after it loses the connection) it simply says it can't connect to the linksys ..

Appreciate any guidance ..

I need you to answer some default questions, so I can assist you in correctly diagnosing your problem. Please answer the following as best you can:


1) What Operating System are you using? (Please include any Updates or Service Patches)

2) What is the Model and Manufacturer of your Modem.

3) What IP Configuration do you Use? What IP Configuration does your ISP reccomend? (DHCP / STATIC / ECT...)

4) What is the Model and Manufacturer of your Router / Hub / Switch?

5) For your Wireless connections are you using the WZC (Windows Wireless Zero Configuration) to manage your wireless connectivity or another Third party Program?

SpaceCowboy,

reponses to your question are as follows:

1. Windows XP Professional with SP2

2. Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection

3. 192.168.1.100 .. my ISP is Roadrunner .. don't know what they recommend .. how do I find out ..

4. Linksys BEFW11S4

5. Using Intel PROset/Wireless .. I have tried shutting it down and using Windows but i have the same issue ..

6. Called Panasonic .. they told me to send in the laptop for a week which is impossible since my work life is 100% on the machine .. they said to run Winsockxpfix to fix any issues with my registry so I did that but it didn't help ..

thanks for your help ..

Hello rkamfar,

Have you already tried a Factory Restore on your Router... and also have you tried changing channels on your router (sometimes eliminates interferrence)?
