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.

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.
This issue arise when there is conflict between drivers the best we can do is to open device manager click on Vien and then select show hidden deivces and disable every driver except your wireless adapter and see if it works.
Thank you please revert back for any clarification.
