    Wireless connection on desktop PC always disconnects

    I have Vista home premium on my desktop PC and connect to a D-Link DSL-G604T modem router using a Linksys wireless-g PCI adapter. Some of the time, the PC will connect to the network but if it does, it usually drops out after 5 minutes and then I can't connect again. I get many different error messages each time:

    Your modem or router is not available
    Cannot communicate with DNS server (
    There might be a problem with one or more network adapters on this computer
    Windows has confirmed that this computer is currently experiencing a network connectivity problem
    Connection Interupted
    There has been an IP address conflict

    My laptop can connect to to the modem fine and doesn't drop out when connected and there connection strength is very good from my desktop when it is connected.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello kieren1992,

    Welcome to Vista Forums.

    I would suggest you re-install the driver for your wireless adapter.
