Problems with wireless and MS Vista

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....

    Brand new Toshiba Satellite. Connected to Wireless Linksys 802.11g router and it worked fine. Then without any symptoms, it just disconnected. Checked my other two computers and they are connected just fine. My laptop shows the network adapter is enabled, but will not connect. An error message says the event name was appcrash and the application name was rundll32.exe. The message said "Windows host rundll32 has stopped working. Windows can check online for a sooution to the problem the next time you are online. (Ha. Ha.) If I cannot get online how can it check it?

    I have a ThinkPad T40 and I have the same issue. My laptop will connect to the wireless and then will get disconnected for no reason. Other computers work fine at this router and all drivers are updated. I am going to try an external wifi adapter to see if my wireless card is the issue....

Try these first:

change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computersProblems with wireless and MS Vista - 4.gif.


check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

I am sorry but you have to purchase the MS off ice package from microsoft.  Your product key you are refering to is for the Windows program only.  We cannot provide you with a key as it is considered software piracy.

Gateway laptop hang issue


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.
