RE: wireless network range disappears after huge amount of data traffi
I'm sorry you're experiencing trouble. There could be a number of causes as
to why you are losing your wireless connection. First, make sure your
wireless adapter, and router are Vista compatible. Second, you may have an
outdated driver for your network adapter. Third, you might have a mismatch
between the security settings in your wireless client and your AP. Fourth,
you could be experiencing radio frequency interference from nearby devices;
or the client is at the periphery of the RF range of the wireless AP.
Check these, and please post back.
