It's the Wireless Zero Configuration service that's doing it. Every 10 minutes or so, the WZC service goes out and tries to look for wireless networks. During this time, it can sometimes disconnect from your wireless network. Usually its brief, merely a few seconds, but long enough to kick you out of games, messaging clients, etc.

There is no easy way to resolve this other than stopping the WZC service after startup and successful connection to your wireless. Unfortunately, if you disable this service altogether, your computer will never connect to any wireless and when looking at the Wireless networks list, it'll mention the WZC service is disabled.

You will also need to re-enable this service everytime you take your PC to places where you'll be connecting to other wireless networks. To stop this service, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Start -> Run -> and type "services.msc" (without quotes)
  2. Scroll to the very bottom of the list
  3. Right click on the Wireless Zero Configuration and choose stop
Once it stops, continue working with your wireless network. If you no longer have disconnection problems every 10 minutes roughly, you've solved your problem. Repeat the above steps after every reboot as the service will be re-enabled after the computer restarts.

Wirless driver for dell inspiron 1501 xp via virgin media wirless router, i think i need the latest driver for"N" class encryption not 802.1 "G"


This model only supports Wireless B/G. A driver upgrade will not add the new technology as it is a different antenna. You can however purchase a Wireless N USB network adapter if the Wireless N band is required.
Most routers will support one of these combinations of bands A/B, A/B/G, B/G, B/G/N. Very few will actually support only 1 band such as only N.

Suddenly lost my wireless connection on Dell Inspiron E1505. The troubleshooting says to turn-on a wireless switch on the front or side but I cannot find the switch--where is it?


Look for a button somwehre near the top of the keyboard that looks like an antenna.
The wireless is usually pretty reliable if it can find a signal. My guess is that the wireless network has died. If it is a router then cycle power on the router. Then reboot the laptop.

Dell Inspiron 1525 not connecting wirelessly to Sky broadband


If your wireless router is configured with SSID, encryption, MAC address filtering (if enabled) etc. then the Dell wireless card needs to be configured with these settings to allow it to communicate with the wireless router.
Check the settings on your PC's wireless settings, and configure the Dell the same way.

Dell Inspiron 1501 cant find Belkin 2000


Do you mean wired or wireless?
If wireless, can you detect other wireless signal or ssid? If not, make sure your wireless is enabled. If yes, make sure the wireless light is lit on your router.
