Problems with wireless connection - gateway notebook

Hi, I have had a gateway T1631 notebook, MS Vista, (with Realtek RTL8187S wireless adapter) for about 6 months now and only recently I have been having trouble connecting to my home wireless network - my roommate has a mac and has no problems connecting to the home wireless network. The home network is a secured network (WPA Personal, secured network with a 16 digit alphanumeric passphrase).   I have no trouble connecting to unsecured wireless networks.  However, when I try connecting to the secured home network it does not work.  As far as I can tell, the passphrase does not seem to be saving properly.  When I change passphrase to the 16 digit alphanumeric, it reverts back to an incorrect +/-8 digit code.  I have tried removing the network connection via the control panel and then re-entering the passphrase but this does not work either.  I am unsure where the problem lies and any help would be MUCH appreciated!!!

Might be several things, but perhaps start with checking for any driver updates that might be available.

    Now that I can see the rest of your post, one route is to set the security type to "no authentication (Open)" , WEP encryption, then type in your passphrase. Is the network availability set to "all users"? I've had this issue at home before, but it's been a while, and I don't remember every step needed. You can also type in the wireless router number that's on the bottom of the router for your passphrase, that might be easiest.

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.

Have realtek 8185, vista, keeps loosing signal


Go to the Device manager and bring up the properties to the realtek 8185 device. There is a tab called Power Management. Click on this tab. There is a checked checkbox that says Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. Uncheck this box. This should stop the random disconnects.
