I'm having regular wireless networking problems with my recently purchased desktop. The wireless connection seems to regularly drop with pages that take a long time to load. Also with You tube pages and large downloads. I have to right-click network icon, select 'Troubleshoot problems', and then windows resets the adapter and I get my network back up again but it's getting so frustrating and I don't know why it's happening. I probably have to do it 30-40 times a day at the moment!
Some more info:
My desktop has a Netgear WPN311 RangeMax Wireless PCI Adapter in it. The device manager shows these as the adapter driver files:
athrx.sys -Atheros Windows driver 126.96.36.199
vwifibus.sys - 6.1.7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255)
My desktop system is as follows:
Windows 7 64-bit desktop on Intel i7 920 @ 2.67GHz
My wireless router is a Netgear WGT624v3 and I'm using WPA-PSK[TKIP] security.
Can anyone help please? My 'all-else-fails' solution is to drill a hole in my wall and run a network cable from my router, but I'd rather get the wireless working if possible.
Many thanks in advance,
