My wifi has full signal but randomly disconnects me. I have tried updating the drivers from both Dell, which has the latest version of 2007 and intel Pro Wireless site which has 2010 as the latest. I still randomly get disconnected adn have to chose "repair" to reconnect.
I have also tried various wifi channels, rebooting modem (at&t uverse) and still no luck. Any ideas for me?
Dell Inspiron E1505 XP SP3
I'm having a similar problem with an E1505. For the first 3+ years I had no issues. On my home network (ATT DSL w/ Linksys router) it connects and stays connected just fine, no change.
At my parents house (Verizon Fios router), it connects, but disconnects and reconnects ever ~10-15 seconds. I can browse, but it take a long time. I was able to remedy this by assigning it a static IP address and it had no more problems for the full week I was visiting.
At the hospital (work - unknown router) it does the same disconnect and reconnect thing, but the static IP thing does not fix anything.
Darren - does yours reconnect right away like mine or does it stay off? I wonder if it's the same thing.
No, mine stays disconnected. But if I right click and choose "repair", this wil remedy my problem until it disconnects again. Mine happens about every 30mins to an hour.
