    My Lenovo laptop has a wifi Intel 3945abg nic that deops off intermittently. I have latest Intel driver, latest BIOS and set Netgear router idle timeout to "0". Still, connection drops. I am looking for a software idle shut off now.

    Any ideas? this is a common reported problem, that Lenovo cannot, or will not aknowledge or address.

Look in your routers settings and see if there is an idle time setting and set this to '0'

You should have only 1 wireless adapter, the other 1 is the ethernet adapter. If you experience low signal strength even after updating the drivers, you need to customize wireless settings on the router.
You need to change the wireless mode to "802.11b and 802.11g" or "802.11g", whatever you have in your router. If this is the same with all wireless networks, wherever you go, then its an issue with the adapter, you should get a replacement.

it'll not fit since your laptop needs an expresscard.
here are the list of the wireless cards that you can get:

Compatibility between linksys WRT54G Router and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Driver

from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time. This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do. If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability. Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems. Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.
