Wireless dropouts and old adapters

Hi all,

I'm having major dropouts with my wireless network. I have other
machines connected, linux, xp and both are great but vista is dropping
out all the time. I think it's something to do with old wireless
network adapters I have installed on my machine.

The wireless connection I am using is called connection 3 which means I
have at some point installed a wireless usb on a couple of my usb
ports.

The question is how do I remove the wireless connections 1 and 2 and
just leave 3 the one I am using at the moment.

I can't find any uninstall for the belkin adapter I used previously but
know they're still on my machine somewhere.

Thanks guys

Re: Wireless dropouts and old adapters
You can "Merge and delete network locations" in Vista.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/12...pe-change.html

Are you broadcasting your wireless network SSID? Not doing so can cause
connectivity issues. More information here...

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb726942.aspx

Its also possible you have a conflict with another wireless network using
the same SSID and/or channel. You could run a scan using the "cmd /k netsh
wlan show networks mode=bssid " command from the "Start -> Run" window or
use one of these scan programs that run on Vista.
