Hi Guys. I've already searched around trying to find a solution to my problem, but couldn't seem to, so I decided to sign up and ask on here, hoping you could help.
I'm using an ASUS Pro31F laptop with Windows 7 Professional 32it.
We recently moved house and got the internet set up. For everyone else in the house the wireless works fine. However for me and my laptop, it is constantly disconnecting and will say "limited access" with a yellow exclamation point over the wireless icon in the system tray. So in other words, it appears as if it has a connection, yet my internet will stop working. I have to disconnect from that same icon and reconnect which usually fixes the problem. But it's so annoying I'm finding myself often having to do it at least every 5 minutes while I'm surfing the net.
Now other members of my family with laptops have mentioned to me occassionally it will disconnect for them, yet rarely - more so nowhere near as much as me. The main difference between my computer and everyone else's is that I'm the only one using Windows 7 while the rest of them all have XP. I've even tried going to other ends of the house where they use it but have the same problem, leading me to believe it is a problem with my computer and not the wireless or router itself. I'm also thinking it is most likely an issue to do with windows 7 as I searched the net and found many people with similar issues. I never had a problem with the wireless on the same laptop at my old house however.
It appears to happen intermittently, however one thing I have noticed that it will usually increase the chance of happening if I am performing a lot of activity on the net. For e.g. if I am looking at wikipedia and open several tabs from links within that page in a short period of time, it will usually not like that, and disconnect again. Same as if I am multi-tasking switching between a few tabs and loading a few pages at once. Not sure if that would help with diagnosing the issue.
I also already tried the following as suggested in another post to no avail:
In the “Local & Wireless Network Connection” you need to un-tick the following items
“Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)”
“Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver
“Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder”
Click OK after un-ticking the above for the changes to apply
At the top of display the type of Lan or Wireless card will be displayed
Click Configure – Click Advanced Tab
Click Connection Type - Change to “Auto- Negotiation”
Click Power Management Tab
Un-Tick if selected "Allow Computer to turn this device off to save power”
Other setting to check
Right click on the wireless Icon in the task bar – Click “Open the Network and Sharing Center”
Click “Change Adapter Setting” left side of page
Right click on “Wireless Network Connection” – Click Status – Click “Wireless Properties Button”
Tick “Connect Automatically when this network is in range
Tick “ Connect even if the network is not broadcasting it name (SSID)
Any help please?
