    Wireless Internet Connection


    I just bought a new Gateway laptop with the Vista Edition of Windows. I have
    an Excellent connection to the internet when I sign on the computer. It will
    stay connected to the internet for a little while (sometimes 5 mins,
    sometimes 30mins) then it just looses connection and won't reconnect. I have
    to restart my computer and then it's connection is excellent again for a
    little while and the cycle starts over. I have taken it to Geek Squad and
    they said there was an update to fix that and they uploaded it but it has not
    fixed the problem. I am not a computer knowledgable person and so maybe this
    is my router problem but would I have such a good connection if it was my
    router? Also, it happens at all wi-fi places. Does anyone know anything that
    can help me?

    This link talks about many possible reasons for "Intermittent Connectivity and the most common scenario is an automatic disconnect about every 3 minutes".
