      Re: constant connect disconnects

      Amazingly, I have just noticed the same thing.

      I have been using my laptop in its usual location (kitchen table) and normally I would be disconnected every 5-10 minutes. Tonight I have not been disconnected once, and the only difference is that I am using the power adapter. I am currently downloading Openoffice as a trial (120Mb). This would normally be impossible, but so far it hasn't missed a beat (45%).

      My laptop is a Toshiba Tecra M1 about 3 to 4 years old (Intel Centrino 1.4GHz).

      Cool Re: constant connect disconnects

      Weird, I was using my laptop earlier this afternoon, on battery, and kept getting probs disconnecting. Never thought anything of it at the time, but I had to plug the mains in cos it was nearly out, and all is well.

      Re: constant connect disconnects

      hi guys,ive just booted up my laptop in safe mode with networking and my wireless connection is superb and dosent disconnect at all using the battery,also noted that accessing web pages is a lot quicker than normal,im now assuming that the constant disconnect issue must be either driver related or that i have a piece of software that is conflicting with my wireless/battery,as i have already said im using vista home premium ,does anybody have a clue where to start to sort out this problem,any help would be appreciated
