    I have the same problem and I have uninstalled the broadcom wireless adapter and re-installed several times, it works for a few times but everyday it is like russian roulette and I don't know what I am going to get. Currently I am using a wireless broadband modem card solution from my internet provider. It is really slow caompared to normal wireless but at least I can connect. I have had a live chat online with hP and they have recommended I reset the wireless card in my laptop. That means opening the back of my machine which I am loathe to do as I not a technical person, things could go from bad to worse!

Hi Vince,
Try this, Go to Control Panel->System->Hardware Tab->Device Manager. Select Intel Pro under Network Adapters. Right Click and Select Properties. Under the Advanced tab, there is a setting for Power Management. On Windows XP, this is a slider with Max Battery on one end and Max performance on the other.

If that don't work, there are several more solutions here,
