Hi got myself a new samsung r40 laptop today but keep disconnecting from my wireless router, I have 2 laptops in the house 1 is an Acer, identical to my previous laptop and it never had any connection issues in the past.
The strange thing is that when I connect the signal strength is full (as it always was with my acer) but then in a short time it disconnects. It shows as limted access in the network sharing centre ? Network discovory is showing as custom ? is this correct.
The property I am in is quite small and as i said with the Acers I have never had any issues.
the laptop is running McAfee if this is of any help.
I had a similar problem with my vista laptop. I tried the channel changing & other tips. I tried an external wireless adaptor, which worked much better than the internal. Even after going back to the supplier (novatech) for a new internal wireless card it was not good. But that all changed with the latest download of drivers. Conclusion (for me, anyway) is that the drivers were buggy. Have you tried upgrading the drivers?
Thhanx for the help, here is what I think did the trick for me.
1. Go into the device manager and look at the properties for your wireless card, now under power management there is an option to turn the device off to save power, make sure that is unchecked and your problem should be fixed!
