Re: WiFi Continually Disconnects
 
Robert,
I was having similar difficulties. My WiFi router is D-Link DI 524 and my
desktop system is a Linksys WiFi card.

I upgraded the router firmware, and configured it to use channel 8. One or
the other of those two changes has completely eliminated the dropped
connections.
