      Unhappy Laptop constantly disconnecting from wireless router

      I have an ACER Travelmate 7220 laptop which is constantly losing the wireless connnection and having to re-connect. I also have an old desktopt connected wirelessly which on first startup has similar problems but is then ok. The signal strength ranges from good to excellent so I don't think it's to blame.

      I've checked router settings and seem ok to me - I have the standard white Netgear router.

      Anyone got an idea what the problem might be?

      I tried every trick in the book including talking to "Derek"!!! (the man on the sky help line in the Philippines who suggested new drives ) and STILL cant get my wireless lappy to log onto the new Sagem sky router although it logs on at both my daughters houses and their lappys logs on at my house too .the other 2 pc's in my house log on just fine

      So I just gave up and bought a wireless dongle and voila !! I am on line now no probs

      Glad your sorted

      also glad you did not need some more help from me, as my understanding of wireless is not much more than my original post
