Are you connecting to your personal network, or a public hot-spot?

When you say its turning itself off, do you just mean that you keep getting disconnected from the Internet?

Can you tell us who your service provider is?

Also, what make/model is your router?

its my personal network, provider is bellsouth (DSL), wireless router is a Linksys wireless-G broadband router 2.4GHz..

when i boot up and enable radio it connects to my home network, but after a few minutes i lose connection and when i double-click on the wireless icon to pull up the Intel ProSet/Wireless window, it says "wireless is turned off. Select Enable Radio to enable wireless networking.", but the Enable radio option is already checked and isn't highlighted as an option...

I recently had a very similar problem with my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG wireless adaptor. I tried updating the driver and wireless software and uninstalling and reinstalling them. I tried the Dell Support website for help. I tried using check disc to fix any hard drive errors and system file checker to fix any corrupted system files. I tried tweaking the services under administrative tools, plus loads of other things I have forgotten. Nothing worked!

In the end I had to format and reinstall XP. Since then I have had no problems at all (touch wood). The adaptor now works fine and no longer keeps disconnecting.

I just had the same problem. Both Sony and my service provider were of no help. On a hunch, I tried downloading the driver update again from the sony download taxi -no internet required. After clicking install software, it gave me the following options: Modify, Repair, Remove. I clicked on repair and then next. It was fixed within a few minutes . . . and two hours dealing with support.
