xp pro wireless disconnects regularly

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Janice F. Jorgensen, Dec 10, 2004.

  1. I have a small home network with a wireless router. Almost daily the laptop
    with xp pro does not "automatically" connect even though it shows that the
    wireless card is up and running. I have to go to "view wireless network,
    advanced, and then select wireless networks... and select ....Use windows to
    configure . the next day it is unchecked and i start over again.

    Any thing I can do to keep that selected all the time. so that I don't lose
    the connection?

    This can occur if your SSID is not beeing broadcasted. It has also been
    known to happen when you have a weak signal, or an unreliable nic driver. If
    you install your diagnostic utility for the wireless card, chances are this
    will take care of your problem.

    The Diag programs do a much better job then the default windows. However SP2
    has improved it greatly.
