      Wireless keeps freezing - need to do REPAIR

      Got a cheap wireless PCI card in my desktop PC. Works great most of the time but it occasionally seems to lock up.

      If you do a repair on the wireless connection it springs back into life.

      Also, got a laptop with a build-in wireless card and never get any probs with this.

      Is there anything I can do about the desktop wireless or is it just likely to be a crappy wireless card I've got?

      Re: Wireless keeps freezing - need to do REPAIR

      I had exactly the same experiences with wireless no matter how I connected either with dongle or pci card, at some point it would stop working only to be fixed with the repair option. Wheras the laptop I have works fine and doesnt skip a beat.
      I gave up with wireless on my desktop and have stuck with wired since.

      I've just got another wireless card off ebay so I'm going to give that a try.

      Yeh, personally, I'd stick to wired but the wife moaned about the CAT5 cable running up the stairs !!!!
