On my laptop, I am constantly losing my wireless connection. The connection says that it is authenticating. It happens off and on all the time. My desktop is hardwired, and I don't seem to have any problems with it's connection. The connection stregth is good on the laptop, but it just continues to connect and disconnect. Any advice?

I would check the settings in your wireless router - Do you know the model/make? or Does this just happen at home or is it everywhere you take the laptop IE: try to connect to a friend or family members network on the wireless. If you are having the same issue then it is something with the onboard wireless. At that point I would tell you A.) take it to a shop or B.) Check to see if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot or a express card slot and purchase a wireless card. It will look like something similar to this:

First before all that though try my first suggestion then post a reply and we'll go from there.

The make and model of the router is a DLINK WBR 2310. What it seems like is that if my there are alot of people with thier networks up, my cpu has issues. It will say sometimes that there is a problem with my "key".
