Losing wireless connection to network and internet

Postby grubinoff » Tue Feb 20, 2007 4:00 pm

I lose my connection to network and internet every 10 minutes or so. I saw a previous post about unistalling two things and unchecking two things on wireless properties and I did that

(Try to unchecking “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)" and "QoS Packet Scheduler".

To do that, Right click on Wireless Network Connection, and then click “Configure”.
If asked for permission to open Network Connections, click on Allow.
Highlight the following items and press the “Uninstall” button:
Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver
Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder

and then uncheck “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)” and "QoS Packet Scheduler".).

I still lose connection but when I go back and reneter my security password for the network, I regain connection for the next block of minutes before it quits again.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Thanks. That has helped it to last longer but I am still losing the connection. I have it set at the 100mbps/Half duplex but I tried all of them. Also I made those changes to my Ethernet NIC and not the wireless adapter. My wireless adapter did not list those options. I hope that was correct.

I am also using a new Toshiba Satellite computer with the Basic edition of Vista.

Please let me know if there is anything else to try.

I followed your steps on another post for changing the power management to always being on for the adapters and that has seemed to be the perfect remedy.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH! This was very annoying.

possible solution for frequent disconnects

Postby genomanx » Wed Mar 14, 2007 11:54 pm

i've been having a prob with my wireless card and vista (laptop came pre-loaded with it) disconnecting every 2 minutes since i bought it (3 days ago). i've tried every possible solution i found on this board and others with no luck. this afternoon, i happened to check windows update and under "optional updates" i found an update for my specific wireless card (Atheros AR5005G). i downloaded and installed the update and have not disconnected in about 8 hours.

just an alternative suggestion when nothing else worked for me. :)

I am having what sounds like the same problem, I'm running a PN18 on Vista Ultimate and have tried the IPv6/QoS method with no success. I cannot update to the latest drivers because they are known to completely fail and not work in any way with Vista, surprise surprise, though I am running on the same drivers that have previously worked on XP.

It would've been helpful if Grubinoff posted a link to this thread, could he have possibly been talking about this? Though I find it confusing, while that thread mentions 'wired network adapters only' it seems to be the thread Grubinoff is most likely referring to, and other sources have also pointed me in that direction, but when I follow the instructions I come to a dead end at the 'Power Management tab', as it does not seem to exist.

Also, the relevant settings in 'Power Options' in the Control Panel seem to be set correctly.

Yet still my wireless card will often at completely random intervals decide that there's no connection, this can be quickly fixed by disabling and enabling the device, or sometimes even just looking into the available networks and selecting it (even though it's set to automatically connect...).

So do you think you can help?

The power settings looks good. You may try to netsh winsock reset command to reset the winsock. Or this post may help,

I'm not sure if this is a simalr instance, but I have been getting told by a few people I work with that since they added a vista computer to their standing network routers are resetting and or completely failing. I have recommended firware updates for routers just not sure what else. It's no specific model, have heared about linksys, netgear, and d-link routes having same problem.

If the firmware doesn't fix the issue or is not available, you may try Microsoft Vista update. This link, may help,

Re: Losing wireless connection to network and internet

I just bought an HP G70 every time I connect to the internet I would lose the connection after a few min's it would say local only. I have a home theater center that run wireless speakers and S-Air radio. The frequency band is 2.4 GHz - 2.4835 GHz . I changed the RF on the home theatre center to OFF saved it and I have been connect to the internet with good speed ever since.
OH, and my home theatre is working just fine as well

You haven't mentioned what OS you have and what you did. I would try to install latest NIC driver first.
