Windows 7: Issue with Netgear N300 wireless and dropping connection

Issue with Netgear N300 wireless and dropping connection

Hi there,

Recently bought an N300 wireless adapter for my PC. I have a normal router which I usually connect to the internet using an ethernet. But sometimes I go wireless.

Initially it all worked wonderfully, without the ethernet my PC was able to pick up the wifi and I could browse, however, after about 5 minutes the bar graph in the bottom right hand corner gains a yellow triangle. Then limited access announces itself and soon enough no page loads at all.

The Netgear 'genie' doesn't show any problems with the connection, the problem seems to be noticed by the windows connection icon in the bottom right hand screen. If I try to reconnect I don't get given the network options I once had.

Hope the above makes sense...any ideas?

Hi scamander

Did you try to get the latest driver from the manufacturer?

hi there - yep, I've got the latest driver. Luckily I'm not using it at the moment so I'll see if it works the next time I need it and feed back then.
