Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate - Losing wireless connection

Windows 7 Ultimate - Losing wireless connection

I used a Linksys WUSB54GC device on my same system when I was running Vista 32 bit. I did a clean install of 7 64 bit and my wireless was recognized fine, but it would lose connection after 45s or so and remain as such until the computer was restarted.

I then updated the driver through windows update to railink drivers and it stays connected longer, but will eventually become disconnected after what seems to be random interval times. Again, the problem is corrected only when I restart.

Are you using homegroup? if not IPv6 can be disabled. IPv6 has been shown to cause random disconnects. Disable it in network and sharing.

Let us know if you need any help with that

I'm not using homegroup so I can do that. Although, I'm not exactly sure how.

It didn't work. Lasted about 5 minutes and then went out.

I've also tried unchecking 'allow windows to turn off this device to save power' or however it says it. That didn't work either. I have noticed that the connection only drops when I have a lot of traffic. Such as watching something on youtube or play some sort of game. Again, the only solution is to restart the computer.

It seems like everyone has given up on this problem. Not one thread on any forum on the web has found what's causing this and/or how to solve it. My intel 5100 encounters daily connection drops into "Limited connectivity". You might want to try to update to these drivers: http://files.laptopvideo2go.com/wlan...13.0.0.107.exe

They have Windows 7 x86 and x64 compatibility so make sure you choose Win 7 after extraction. Credit to someone on this forum though I forgot whom it was.

I really get that same feeling, as I've done a lot of research on this topic and have seen every thread just die off.

The link you posted didn't seem to work for me. I'll check by later for them, for right now I'm going to hope the xp drivers I had to use in Vista will pull through for me again.
