Question about Gateway (802.11usb) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Wireless connection drops to limited after a few minutes

I have a Gateway laptop, T-1628, AMD Turion 64x2 TL 60GHZ processor, 3 GB memory, and Realtek wireless card. Our home wireless is a D-link router, WEP key. It works on two other Gateway laptops without problems. On this laptop, it connects fine, then within a few minutes, stops, and gets that yellow warning triangle claiming the problem is between the router and the internet. Since the others are still working, obviously it isn't. I've done all the troubleshooting that Vista or Gateway suggests, and nothing found. Help!

    The signal quality doesn't seem to be the issue. It happens near the router and on the other side of the house. I have also reproduced it on two public wireless networks.

    I've played with it for awhile, and I can't find the proxy and ip settings to check. This is Vista, and it doesn't look like what I'm used to on XP. Help?

    Are you very far away from the router? How's your signal quality when it shows that the connection is limited?

Realtek RTL8187B wireless NIC hangs after a few hours


The computer needs a new NIC. If you don't want hangs and lags. Buy a new one. You can still use that NIC but with the less load of course. The NIC maybe old and when electronics ages, the performance downgrade can be seen.

Wireless driver problem


I am currently using Linux on a Compaq C500 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. Sounds like your wireless adapter is on of the ones that uses the b43 module like mine.

Aside from using the correct module, you also need a firmware image. Instructions can be found at: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

Hope this helps and good luck with Linux! Once you fully switch to Linux you'll never go back to crappy M$ products!

Wireless network disconnection sometimes


The Toshiba Satellite A210 has a built in wireless adapter - at least all of the ones I did a quick check on the specs. If yours has a built in wireless why are you using an adapter??? Presuming you have a good reason - have you gone in and disabled the built in wireless? They could be conflicting. Second I would use Network Magic software to setup your home network. I struggled many hours and could not get everything to work the way I wanted - all problems with home network fixed in minutes with Network Magic. I do not work for them or anything but I will tell you it is the best software money I have ever spent - and I have been around since 10MB was a dream hard drive.
