      Smile Laptop keeps disconnecting then reconnecting

      I have solved a problem which has been really winding me up. My ACER laptop which runs VISTA kept disconnecting every few seconds then connectging again. I tried everything. Was it the firmware or the router, was my router located in wrong location, was my cordless phone interfering.

      I tried clicking on the update wireless adapter software and it said you have most up to date software. Rubbish. I went straight to the INTEL site to check and low and behold, the software version was different. The newest version was specifically for VISTA. I downloaded and updated directly from INTEL site and doesn't disconnect at all now. It's brilliant.

      Moral - do not try to check for wireless adapter software from the wireless adapter settings, bypass and go straight to your supplier's website.
      Hope this helps other people pulling their hair out.
