My son is on my wireless LAN. It has worked pretty well, but this weekend he keeps getting thrown off the network. It seems to be broadcasting just fine.
We can then change something (like go from channel 6 to channel 1) and then he is on for 10-20 minutes or so again. I'm very confused!
We've tried reinstalling the drivers and manually configuring the connection instead of letting windows do it. We can get it running, but only for a short while.

This sounds like network issue ISP...call them they will trouble shoot for you..ping your modem ..is this wifi or lan that's dropping speed ? Take a Ethernet plug one end into modem and the other end into your computer , if it stays on it's not your modem . When you test modem make sure router is not attached, This will tell you its your router is dropping wifi..now if this does not work on the modem it's the modem or ISP...if you have combo modem with router still plug Ethernet to test connection...I can go more into detail just don't want to confuse you...I hope this help...
HI! that is correct.. your device wont connect bcoz you change the wep, ssid name etc on the router.. if the security settings is change from the router and your wireless devices have the old settings it wont work and it will not connect.. you need to enter the new wep, ssid name etc to the wireless devices in order to connect to the wireless network..
I had this same problem this weekend. This is a 802.11 B card. It can use WEP and WPA for network security/encryption. You can find the driver here -> http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-67214
Once you download the file run it and install. Your wireless card will then work.
Note: This adapter will not support WPA2 type network encryption. It will only run at speeds up to 11Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. Make sure you have set you router to support this older format.
Hi Friend, Kindly check the below given instructions,
To access the WIRELESS (WLAN) settings window, click on the Wireless Setup button in the SETUP directory.
WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS
1.Click on the Enable Wireless box to allow the router to operate in the wireless environment.
2.The SSID identifies members of the Service Set. Accept the default name or change it to something else. If the default SSID is changed, all other devices on the wireless network must also use the same SSID.
3.Enable Auto Channel Scan so that the router can select the best possible channel for your wireless network to operate on.
4.The Wireless Channel can let you select the channel of your access point. Channel availability is different for different countries due to their regulation.
5.Select 802.11 Mode to operate in b/g/n mode. Or select specified mode to use.
6.Channel Width, Maximum rate for 20 MHz is 130 Mbps. Maximum rate for 40 MHz is 270 Mbps.
7.Transmission Rate, suggest keeping the Best (automatic) selection.

WIRELESS SECURITY MODE - WEP
1.WEP (Wireless Encryption Protocol) encryption can be enabled for security and privacy. WEP encrypts the data portion of each frame transmitted from the wireless adapter using one of the predefined keys.

4.Enter the key into the WEP Key field 1~4. (Key length is outlined at the bottom of the window.)
5.Select Authentication type from the drop-down menu. (Shared is better than Open)
