Windows 7 keeps dropping connection

Hey guys,

Windows 7 keeps dropping my connection. It started happening about 3 days ago. Thought I fixed it by turning off my wireless router but it came back. When it happens the connection bar drops from 5 bars to 4. To get it back I have to disable the adapter in the network and sharing center. I'm using a Nexxt Solutions NW230NXT Wireless Router and I have a Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter. All help would be appreciated .

When is the last time you updated the firmware of the router? Nexxt Solutions It might help and it might not just download the firmware to your particular router and update it. Unzip the zip file from the download and there should be instructions on how to do this for your router. Post back with your results...If it doesn't solve the issue ask yourself how old is the router it just might be going bad..

Well, I forgot to post back. I disabled the connection for "Hamachi" and it's been working since. If anything happens again I'll try that.

OK not a problem hope it works out.. BTW that would cause the connection to drop if 2 adapters were enabled on the computer so you should be good...
