I recently bought a new Gateway laptop with MS Vista Home premium edition. I am having issues with my wireless connection: very often, the laptop can not connect to the wireless network, or gets disconnected with no reason. When that happens my other computer (a Macbook) is connected flawlessly to the same wireless station.
I updated the wireless card with the last drivers.... still not working. Tried some of the things I found in the web about changing the energy saving profile for the wireless card. No results. I am pretty sure that this is a Vista issue, but i have no idea what to try next, and this thing keeps failing. Any guidance will be appreciated....

Check the Windows Page File to determine whether it's system managed or manually set. The recommended settings is twice the amount of RAM installed in the machine. If set too low the system will hang often, especially when running memory hungry apps.
I would also suggest checking screensaver and power management options in the control panel.
If those don't work, close any unused applications which run at startup (Start, Run, MSCONFIG). Another possible solution could be updating your display driver.
check that you have all updates for your linksys and cable modem and the new adapter you bought since your pc is old..
if that doesn't help then try the following:
i would shut down pc, uplug router power, turn off the cable modem and give it all at least 10-20 secs.. plug the other pc in the router then start up cable modem and router.. after that, then turn your pc on and see if it recognizes...
is the adapter for a desktop to make wireless of a laptop, just curious..
