Network adapter power settings:

The first thing you'll want to do to prevent your wireless connection from dropping is to see if your computer is managing your wireless card's power. It may be instructed to shut off your wireless connectivity after a certain amount of idle time goes by. If you have system specific utilities, such as Dell's Quickset, make sure that the wireless power management isn't set to shut off the card if your computer is idle for a certain period of time. Second you'll want to check the settings on your wireless card via your device manager. In Windows XP:

Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties"

  • Select "Hardware" and click on "Device Manager"
  • Find your wireless card under "Network adapters" and double-click it.
  • Verify that there aren't any auto power management settings enabled that might be shutting your card down prematurely



Adjust your wireless router settings

  • Lower the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) from 1500 to 1492 or less (usually found on your router's main/ basic setup page)
  • Adjust the following advanced wireless settings:
    • Lower the beacon interval from 100 to 50
    • Lower the fragmentation threshold from 2346 to 2306
    • Lower the RTS threshold from 2347 to 2304

Voila :) That should solve your wireless connectivity problems and should prevent your wireless connection from dropping.







Intermittent Connectivity:

NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).

This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the router.

Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.

Reducing Wireless Interference

If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:

your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors'), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router

We ran a typical Pavilion dv8000 Battery of tests, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.

I have an ASUS Essentio CM1630-03/AMD X2 245/4GB/640G. Does this PC have wireless capability? I am planning to switch from hard wire internet to wireless. Will this work on this PC?


The motherboard in your computer doesn't have wireless built into it. Pick up an inexpensive USB wireless adapter and you'll be able to connect to a wireless access point. Search TL-WN725N on Amazon as an example of one which would work for you.

The problem lies in the wireless connection. Either the wireless adapter on the game console, or with your wireless router. Although wireless internet makes it easier to get online and play, it is actually the worst choice for online gaming. this is due to the lag time in the signal relay to the router. Wired internet is the best choice for online gaming. If you can hook your console up to a wired internet connection, then I suggest you do that.

Your obviously having a network configuration issue. Go into Network icon, set up a network connection, make sure you have Wi-Fi and that your laptop is picking up the signal then manually set up or scan for the wifi access point, your laptop should pick up the access point and a name should appear for that wifi spot. Once that is done then you can rename your access point with your name or HOME whatever you like, its hard to explain through here.

Can't pick up wireless internet through router


You need to have the specific wireless adapter made for the Xbox 360. It runs about $100. Other wireless adapters (for some reason) will not work. I tried 6 different ones before I gave up and hard wired the Xbox 360.

Connecting my xbox to internet with utstarcom um100c modem on pc


You are not going to like the answer I have for you. Forget connecting wireless with X-box. Purchase a router with an Ethernet port. I do this for a living and run in to this problem all the time. Trust me, hard wire with X-box is the way to go. A Lynksys router is a good router and is also VERY user friendly.

Unable to connect to my wireless network connection (SSID still VISIBLE)


Log on to the router, go to your wireless setup page. Disable wireless, reboot it and when it comes back up, enable wireless once more with a different pre-shared key. You'll need obviously to enter this new key into your laptops. Let me know if this solves the problem.
