Wireless not reconnection always.

    I have a dell D6000 laptop. XPSP3, AVG, ZoneAlarm, Windows Defender.
    The wireless is usually connected. But now and then I just see a popup
    saying its connected. I never see the status go off, just see it
    "connected".
    But then now and then the pop up shows, not connected. And it won't
    automatically (though its set to) reconnect.
    I can open the dialog and click my router and say connect, it will
    prompt me for the ****** key and I just okay it and it plays a bit,
    acquires network address, and is connected. Just like I want it to.
    But I've tried waiting for 30 minutes and it won't do it on its own. I
    have to sometimes prompt it. Tonight I got a dong, and a note saying
    "adapter problems" and it pointed to the wireless adapter. (built in
    by the way).

    Any ideas? If it did it more than 1 time in 3 days I'd be a bit concerned.

    Do you use the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration utility to manage
    your wifi adapter?

    I only ask 'cos I have found that the Dell or Intel management
    software can be a bit flakey and using the built-in windows stuff
    seems to be much less prone to causing disconnects at odd moments.
