I'm having a problem with my wireless connection and unfortunately seem to be the only one in my house that is experiencing this.
We have a relatively new Netgear wireless connection set as WEP and I have no problem connecting to the network. The problem is that after a short period of time browsing the net my connection times-out, despite showing full signal strength. As previously stated, I am the only one out of 5 in my house with this problem. I can solve the problem by restarting my laptop (HP Pavillion dv5000), only for it to occur again after 5 minutes or so. I don't think that my settings are set to timeout my connection after a period of inactivity and even if they were, my connection times-out while I am actively trying to see web-pages.
I have read these forums and noted suggestions such as re-installing my network card, which I will try this evening - but any other advice would be much appreciated.
Find the make of your wireless adapter and go to the manufacturers web site and get the latest drivers for it ( not from the HP site though ) , and if it isn't already , try letting Windows manage the connection .
Thanks you for your suggestions. I spend an entire evening deleting applications from my laptop and re-starting to see if that worked and after sweat, tears & the odd fit of rage, I found out that it was ZoneAlarm that was the problem. I hadn't touched it for ages, but for some reason it was obviously not liking the new router.
