Long story short.....

Vista laptop with aol broadband using netgear dg843g router connects wirelessly then after a short while drops connection every minute which makes doing anything a pain in the bottom. Does anyone know why this might be?

Any clues appreciated

Disable IPv6 In Vista

Windows Vista contains both the familiar IPv4 stack and the new IPv6 stack.

IPv6, when it's rolled out across the Internet over the next few years, will bring an end to the problem of running out of IP addresses and improve other aspects of TCP/IP operation.

However you do not need IPv6 at present time disable IPv6 on the Windows Vista system.

How to fix Vista's network bottlenecks

The problem with Vista's new-fangled network stack

All this automatic tuning of the Vista network stack sounds great in theory

But the problem is that some clients don’t support TCP window scaling

Or don’t have it enabled.

Additionally, some firewall products also don’t support it.

If using McAffee uninstall and turn off IPV6

In either scenario, the result is dropped packets, which affects network performance horrendously

Your traffic is literally dropping into a black hole, never to be seen again.

Try this open up an Administrative Command Window

Right-click-Run as Administrator and type in the following command:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

You may also need to type in:

netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled

The changes take effect straight away, with no reboot needed.
