    Vista Systems Keep Loosing Wireless Internet Connectibity

    Only my Vista O/S systems keep loosing wireless internet connectivity. It
    started out being once a day at some point after a windows update about a
    month or so ago and now has grown significantly to every few minutes with
    each successive update. Each update only seems to make Vista more unstable
    with respect to both wireless network connectivity and the loss of printer
    communications. I spend more time fighting to keep Vista up and running than
    I am able to do getting work done. I simply do not have this problem with my
    systems that are running Windows XP and feel that I must now consider moving
    all my systems back to XP in order to get my work done. Vista is a maddening
    support nightmare that only seems to get worse rather than better. I have
    had to reinstall each of my Vista systems multiple times due to major crashes
    that have occurred as a result of this networking issue. It has left my
    systems in unrecoverable states on several occassions - at least 3 times now
    times 5 systems is a lot of reinstalling and lost time. Very frustrated and
    fed up with Vista. Help please.

    please post the text output of ipconfig /all
    http://digitalmediaphile.wordpress.c...t-text-output/

    and some details about your router - brand, model, hardware version
    - do you have the latest firmware?

    Re: Vista Systems Keep Loosing Wireless Internet Connectibity

    there have been some problems with the Intel wireless
    adapter/driver. First, unbind IPv6
    http://digitalmediaphile.wordpress.c...windows-vista/

    Second, please check and confirm you are using the newest driver
    from the Intel site.

    Also check to insure you are running the latest firmware for the
    router. http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d103107.asp
