I have windows 7 64bit and a linksys wireless adapter. What happens is when i turn desktop on the internet connects fine and then 1 or 2 mins later it disconnects and i cant get the internet. when i check the status of the connection its at 13.5mbps then 1 min later its at 300.0 mbps and im connected back to the internet and all is working fine and it remains that way for the rest of the session till i restart the computer.From what i can gather this is a OS problem. Router is ok with laptops with win7 and xp both wireless. This is not a serious problem but is annoying. It looks to me as if a service is starting then stopping then starting again (i dont know).. Any help would be greatly appreciated ... thanks in advance
sorry for double post ... i think the problem is an os problem ...the adapter stays connected to the router but not the internet .. sometimes the wireless internet access icon in the icon tray says limited access .. also there is not enough time to run a diagnostic on the problem
This is common, first thing to check is your security settings.... Most new routers will default to WPA win 7 64 bit for some bizarre reason does not like this, so first thing to try is security settings.
Go back to WEP first, then see if your connection is steady. Then we can ramp it up a bit. I had the same issues with a recently installed Draytek router / modem.
If WEP works, then I will post a workaround for you, or email me........I still have not got the hang of the new site yet!
