Wireless connection problem, dropped connection when signal is strong

I the laptop listed above. I seem to lose the connection to my wireless router on a constant basis. This computer runs Windows Vista. My older laptop is used in the same room and keeps the connection constantly. This also prevents me from using a Cisco solution for VPN connections on this laptop. The other one using Windows XP holds the signal and connects to my VPN at work very easily and every time. The Vista computer has a Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN. Is it the problem?

    This is almost 100 % the same for me. One Bell tech person said to connect with the person who set up the VPN while my person indicated it has nothing to do with him. The drop rarely occurs during the weekend so I am wondering if this has to do with others using the VPN in our company and or if the drop offs occur due to the general traffic on the internet.

SOURCE: WiFi unable to connect/maintain connection

Hello b... couple things.

First; see if going into Control PanelNetwork Connections and disabling the wireless network connection, then enabling it again fixes it. If it does then you have a work-around...

Second; there was a Realtek driver update offered by Windows Update. If that has
been installed (Control Panel-Programs and Features-View Installed Updates)
roll it back to the previous driver through Device manager and get the
update direct from either Toshiba or Realtek.

See if that helps.

This seems to be happening with that Wireless card and Vista... let me know what happens please.

My Fujitsu wont stay connected to my wireless internet


Maybe the wireless card in the laptop is no good or not strong enough to receive a good strong signal. Try sitting close to the wireless router and see if it loses connection. Does it connect at all and let you on the internet before it loses the signal? If it does not connect at all I'd say you might have an issue with the password or the type of wireless security protocol type you selected to connect with. For example there are different types of wifi security protocol types: (Ex. wep, wpa, wpa2) .

I keep losing signal or internet connection on my laptop but desktop is still connected what can I do I continuously rest the router but keep losing it, Also what is the security button for on the router


Do you have something like a cordless phone or baby monitor near the router or laptop? These can cause interference with the wireless signal and cause dropped connections.

The security button is for if you have a compatible wireless card, you can get it to 'automatically' configure the wireless settings by pushing this button on the wireless router, and then press the button on the wireless client... they exchange the wireless keys, etc and establish a connection without having to configure it in Windows.

If you are interested in further info about the router, you can find the use manual here:

Hope that helps :)

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Belkin Nimo wireless router internet drop outs


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) .
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

You need to check the signal strength in the other room and compare it with where you were getting a good signal.
Check the other Access Points/routers in your area, are they broadcasting on the same channel, if they are then change your access point/router to a different channel.
To improve radio reception you may need to move the access point/router to another location away from solid walls etc.
Your wireless card may be as good as your roomates, if possible borrow one of theirs and set it up (configure it) for your laptop and see it it works better.
Try the other options before you buy another wireless card.

Wireless connection keeps falling


It may be just a problem of the signal bouncing around and your laptop is struggling at times to find the signal. Some earlier laptops don't have a wireless booster built in the screen. Go to your laptops' web site and see if there are any updated drivers for your wireless card. If still unhappy with results purchase a USB wireless dongle and dissable wireless card, it may have a better reception area, or purchase a signal booster that works in conjunction with your wireless router.

Wireless router dropping then disappeared


If other wireless hosts are connecting to the wireless router with no problem, and the windows laptop intermittently connects, then this seems to indicate a problem with the wireless card in your windows laptop. If the device is still under warranty, it should not be a problem to contact the laptop vendor and have it replaced.
