Try these first:

change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computers.

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

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network ConnectionWireless adapter disconnecting and reconnecting - 1.gif 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 phones 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.

Are you using the VISTA adapter driver on the disconnecting computer?

My filemate wireless adaptor keeps disconnecting from the router

Try these:

  • Open Device Manager, open the Network Adapters, double-click the wireless adapter to open its Properties, click the Power Management tab, and deselect "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

  • Some internal wireless adapters will have conflicts with your sound card, using the same interrupt. If either of the devices will let you change the interrupt under Properties, Resources, that would be a good think to test. USB wireless dongles are cheap, and there are no interrupt problems.

Internet connection keeps dropping

Two possible reasons

If you have hidden your network name (SSID) in the wireless configuration in the router and use WEP or WPA security there may be a bug that can result in extended disconnect periods. Recommended solution unhide the SSID and keep the WEP or WPA security.

Second there are numerous wireless devices in use. Keep your wireless phone base station away from your wireless router. Try changing the channel your router's radio uses to transmit -- Channels 1, 6 and 11 are preferred. Try one you are not using, if that does not work try the other. (If you can see the surrounding channels in you connection wizard you may want to start with one no one else is using)
