Wireless Connections keeps dropping and won't reconnect. The Adapter can see the network it simply won't connect.
Without knowing what wireless device/adapter is trying to connect and lacking the information regarding the router you're using, the following is the best I can do with the information you've provided. If this does not work, please repost your question the same as you have, but include the info for the adapter, PC, operating system, and router (or as much of this as you can track down).
If your adapter can see the network but will not connect, it is usually due to a wireless network key (wifi password) issue. Change your wireless router's network key encryption to something different. WEP is less secure than other encryption methods, however, it tends to be compatible with more adapters than any other method. If you're uncomfortable with using WEP (you may have no choice, but you'll have to mess around with it to see), then you could use standard WPA instead of WPA2.
While you're at it, please change the SSID(network name) to something else. You can even do something as simple as adding "1" to the end of it. The reason for this is because your wireless device will retain previous network security information for the original SSID and this will be easier than clearing all wireless network settings from each of your wireless devices.
Now that you have changed the wifi security settings in your router, you are now ready to try to connect to your "new" network. It's new because you changed the SSID. Search for networks and connect. It SHOULD ask you for the network key (or network password). If it does, PLEASE enter it exactly. Capitalization matters!
If this does not work, repeat the process. This time, choose another encryption method. Every other step should be exactly the same.
Again, if none of this works, re-post your question with as many details as possible (above) and I'll keep a look-out for your question. If this is helpful, please help me by leaving a great rating for this answer to your question. Thanks for using Fixya!
