If your using wireless then:

On the bottom you see the "Show icon notification ..." make sure that is unchecked.

Close out and your good. no more notification.

Hello My WNA3100 Wireless adapter keeps dropping my connection about every 4-10 minutes and the solution is to unplug the adapter and plug it back in. This has become more than a slight annoyance and

try moving your computer to a different area to gain maximum frequency / range

Click start control panel network and internet look for wireless

"Allow the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive" might be ticked untick it


Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.

From the pop-up menu select "Enable."



This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.

Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.



After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.

click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'

(or similar) and click 'enable'.

Do you have your wireless connection enabled as well as your LAN connection (wired) connected and enabled at the same time? It may be as simple as turning the your wireless card off when your are connected with a wired connection. I would try that first and see if it that could be the issue. Shut the wireless card off and see if your results are different with just the ethernet cable connected.

Cheers!

Try rebooting both the modem and the router. It could be that the modem didn't pick up it's ip number when the internet went down. Then try pluggint you computer directly into the modem first to make sure it is setup and working properly. Then plug in the router (to the modem) and the PC plugged in directly to the router and check.

Once you have it connecting at that point then check the wireless settings on both the router and the pc. Then enable the wireless on the pc, unplug the LAN and switch to wireless network on the pc and see if it won't work.

If it works plugged in on the LAN but then not on the wireless then either your configuration isn't correct (ie wrong gateway ip number...gateway should be the same ip number as the router...ie 192.168.***.***) or perhaps the wireless part of the router died. It is possible for the wireless to die and the LAN (hard wired connection) to still work.

Wireless internet


There will be a lapse in network communications as your laptop switches from LAN to Wireless, presumming that you have a Wireless access point in the area with DHCP enabled. If it doesn't work at all when unplugged from the ethernet, you may want to verify that your Wireless is turned on, and connecting to your network using the Wireless Network Configurator included with windows xp and above
