Wirless Problems
I am having a connection problem with a new Dell Laptop, Inspiron 1501 that
has the new Windows Vista. We installed a new router, Lynks and it seems
that everytime this computer goes to sleep, or gets shut off, it looses the
wireless connection. Now, if you hover over the network icon in the bottom
right hand corner, it says it is connected to the home network, but when you
click on Internet Explorer, it will not connect. I am tired of deleting this
connection and re-adding it especially since you have to enter that hugh
string of numbers every time. The laptop connects to the Internet just fine
if I disconnect the network cable from the desktop and connect it to the
laptop, so I feel sure it is not the modem or router. Is there anyone else
out there that is having a similar problem? If so, how did you fix it.

Re: Wirless Problems
Hi JL.
Windows might be turning off the network adapter to save power. Turn off the
power-saving option in the network adapter's properties (wired network
adapters only):


1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , clicking
Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing
Center, and then clicking Manage network connections.

2. Right-click the connection, and then click Properties. If
you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the
password or provide confirmation.

3. On the Networking tab, click Configure.

4. On the Power Management tab, clear the Allow the computer to
turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.



Hope this helps!
Thanks,
Gloria
