Wifi disconnect on vista business

My Vista is randomly disconnecting from wifi networks, without a reasonable trigger. When it disconnects, sometimes i can just reconnect, and sometime it disables my wireless, so I have to turn the wireless radio back on. I have a lenovo x300 and an Intel wireless card.

We recently upgraded our iphones. Since then we are having truoble with our internet connection randomly disconnecting some of the devices being used.

If the WIFI security encryption for the WIFI password isn't in what's called "WPA2-ONLY", sometimes there will be random disconnects. By default, I think the encryption is "WPA+WPA2 mix mode" which can be the source of disconnects.

You will find this in your router's settings which you can access by navigating to what's called the default gateway IP in any web browser. Commonly, it is, but can be, or even It will ask you for a username and password if you've done it correctly. It might say on the router what the username and password is, or you can find the default login credentials online for all common routers.

Login, then find some kind of "security" tab, maybe under wireless, or WLAN, or something like that. It will give you an encryption option for the wireless network and password, and choose the WPA2-ONLY option. Save or apply the settings, and your router will reset and hopefully you won't have any more disconnect issues.

Wifi disconnects

I wonder if your router's encryption method is WPA or WPA2, and it is set to update its passwords periodically (like. every minute). If so, try to remove such action.

Router works with Ubuntu but with locks up with Vista

You need to log on with admin privileges to make changes.

I have 2 USB key drives, and if I write files to them on one of two computers, then try and read them on the other (or sometimes the same computer) they are sometimes corrupt.

are the computers running lower than windows xp? if they are you need to disconnect the usb drive from the option near your clock before you take it out, on windoxs xp or vista you can just pull out the drive pen without disconnecting it.

Wireless network disconnection sometimes

The Toshiba Satellite A210 has a built in wireless adapter - at least all of the ones I did a quick check on the specs. If yours has a built in wireless why are you using an adapter??? Presuming you have a good reason - have you gone in and disabled the built in wireless? They could be conflicting. Second I would use Network Magic software to setup your home network. I struggled many hours and could not get everything to work the way I wanted - all problems with home network fixed in minutes with Network Magic. I do not work for them or anything but I will tell you it is the best software money I have ever spent - and I have been around since 10MB was a dream hard drive.
