I have a wireless network that uses a 2Wire router. The connection always gets dropped (the wireless icon in XP will have a red X next to it). 5 minutes later, it will come back up again. This happens about once per hour, and it occurs on all of the computers on the network.
I tried switching it to channel 1 and 11. Still had the same issue. Then I went out and got a Netgear access point and put it on channel 11. The same problem STILL continues, even with a new access point!
What the hell could be wrong?
Well this is just a guess, have you updated the drivers to your wireless card?
Also is your card compatible with the access points? it probably is compatible, to where it could be the driver. but have you had this problem before?
Who is your 2wire modem from? AT&T,verizon or qwest? you might want to contact them if its in warranty to see if it is it thats the problem.
Let us know if you solve this!
