computer keeps disconnecting and reconnectin to wireless every 2secs

hey all! as specified in the title, it's killing me! it started right after i used the reset button on my zyxel nbg 419g. since then the wireless fails every 2 seconds on my desktop and i can't connect to any website...other devices work fine over the wireless and i have the latest adapter driver installed (dlink dwa131); pls give me some ideas on how to solve this...it's driving me nuts

Try uninstalling that driver, rebooting, then reinstall.

Ha Hi Cataclism ,
Bro have u ever sync ur iphone in ur Komputer, Or installed Itunes Software , The internet connection drops means certainly its due to Bonjour Services


To remove the Bonjour Service:

• Stop Bonjour Service by opening a command prompt (remember to open the command
prompt with Administrator privileges in Vista) and type:
sc stop “bonjour service”
• Once that is done, in the same command prompt type:
sc delete “bonjour service”
• Now we need to disable the Bonjour socket driver.
• Start regedit.exe (with Administrator privileges in Vista) and go to the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentContr… es\WinSock2\Parameters\NameSpace_Catalog… Entries
\000000000004

(please note: the final digit in this key may vary depending on your circumstances - look
through all the entries under Catalog_Entries - the key you're dealing with should contain
LibraryPath = C:\Program Files\Bonjour\mdnsNSP.dll)

• Within that key find the entry:

Enabled=REG_DWORD:00000001 - change it from 1 to 0.
• Exit out of the command prompt and reboot your PC.
• Once you have logged back in, delete the C:\Program Files\Bonjour (with the files
mDNSResponder.exe and mdnsNSP.dll).
There you have it - these instructions will work for Windows XP and Vista, Windows 7


WeWill find out more, if this didnt work for you


Thanks,
Suren

yea, did that..f5ing...same story

i did hear about bonjour, so i decided to uninstall it while i was trying to make things working again. the thing idon't get, is that the adapter was working before the router reset, maybe not brilliantly, but it was... i tried finding the registry path now but there isn't one with bonjour in that place

Find the adapter in Device Manager and check its power options. Make sure it doesn't show any errors and that it's not set to allow the OS to turn off the device to save power...

If that's not it post a screenshot of an ipconfig /all.
