      Angry Bitcomet Disconnects my laptop!

      Hi,

      I was happly using Bitcomet for about a year, but I wanted to reinstall Vista is it was getting a bit slow to returned my laptop to default. With my nice clean VISTA installed, I went back to Bitcomet, same version as I was using before...

      Now, after about 3 or 4 minutes my laptop loses connection with my router and I have to restart the laptop before I can connect again. Any ideas as to why this happens and what I can do about it?

      Using Netgear Router, Vista

      Thanks,
      SW6

      Try changing channels on the router. Also check for any new drivers for you wireless adapter.

      Nope - No luck on either front. It lasted a bit longer after changing the channel, about 20 mins, but has gone down again.


      Any other suggestions?

      I assume it works fime with a wire, have you tried?

      How are you controlling the wireless adaptor? are you using windows wireless manager or manager which came with the card? I would suggest usind the windows one if your not and vice versa if you are to see if it that.

      Have you fully updated Vista to Sp2? There were several wireless enhancements in these packs, so if you have not done so, download and install them. It can take some time to update if you wait for the auto-updates.

      You might also want to try running Vista anti lag, available from here-
