Windows 7: Wireless Connection dropped

Wireless Connection dropped

Hi I have a Wireless Trendnet TEW-432BRP router. My wireless internet connection keeps dropping every 30 minutes. After it drops it usually reconnects by it self in like 1minute. This is getting to be annoying since this occurs a lot while I play online games. This router has been perfectly working fine before. It is connected to the computer using an Ethernet cable.

What may be the problem?

Please and thank you.

Try this:

Start > right-click on 'Computer' > Manage > Device Manager > open network adapters, right click and open properties on your adapter > advanced tab > look for 'Link Speed & Duplex' and change value to '100Mbps Full Duplex'

I noticed that on the device mangers list, it shows a caution sign on the storage controllers. It says it may be corrupted or missing. Is that a problem?

You need a driver for it. Right click the icon and 'update driver'

Honestly it's not a Windows 7 problem or at least not one that I've ever heard of before, it's either your router or the network driver.

To fix this problem you will need to either update your router with new firmware or find a Windows 7 compatible driver for your system. The fact that connection drops in a timely manner every 40 minutes would indicate a problem with the router.

It may be worth while to check that you are using a clear wireless channel.
