Windows 7: intermittent wireless problem :(

18 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 build 7100 x86
intermittent wireless problem :(

Hi everyone, ive been getting this weird wireless problem. It started about 4 days ago (been working fine for ages), and it happens intermittently. My internet will stop working for about 10-15 seconds and then reconnect. The wireless icon doesnt show the disconnect, but it stops working then reconnects. kind of frustrating. running 7100 rc. Ive tried everything I can to try and find the culprit, but no dice Has anyone else experienced this? or should i start looking further down the line to the router (gets powercycled all the time)?

take a few hours/days to glance around this forum.... search function is handy

seriously tho, grab a paddle cuz you are in a big ole boat thats holding alot of ppl on this fantastic voyage.

edit: also, try filling in those specs some. I know you have done more than some fill out, but interestingly you are on a tablet it seems like. So yea, find out your sound, and what kind of wireless nic are you using.

oh sorry i had a quick look but couldnt find threads about this situation. must endeavor to look harder next time. il try and fill in the specs a bit. so is it a problem people have been experiencing since beta, or just the rc?
