My main computer used to connect to the router via network cable.

It is now using WIFI. There are no downloads, only XP and Vista. I am using the Win7 x64 auto driver I guess.
It is a Linksys WMP54G v4.1.

What happen is that upon a reboot, works fine but after a while, it loses connection, refresh does not work. I have to restart the computer. I am using the Windows 7 Wireless Software thingy.

I have just unticked - auto turn off to save power.


:thanks

No surprise, the Windows drivers are rubbish, try this:

When it drops connection try disabling and re-enabling it. Post back if it works.

When I disable the device - device manager stops responding. It also refuses to completely shutdown/restart the computer.

The device very occasionally work for some hours but mostly it may connect upon bootup and fail loses a connection within 10mins or 30mins. Some of the time upon bootup it does not work either.
