Windows 7: loosing internet connection 3-5 mins after starting system.

loosing internet connection 3-5 mins after starting system.


About 3 to 5 minutes after starting my system I loose internet connection. I click on the wireless signal bar in the task tray and disconnect and reconnect to the internet and from then on it works fine! I'm using the linksys wusb600n wireless adapter and have the latest 64 bit drivers for it installed.

Any ideas what could be the cause of this? I guess something else starting in the background could be interupting? How do I find out?

Is this just when you have wireless connected or does it do it to wired as well?

I know this seems like a silly question but it does help with process of elimination.

Hi acurasd,

I believe it's just with the wireless. I haven't had it wired in a while but I don't remember it doing it when it was.
