I'm running windows Vista and am having problems with running wireless in my apartment. Every so often while having good signal strength, my computer decides to no longer recognize the internet connection. My connection will suddenly change from local and internet to local only. On top of this, I can not just re-establish the connection; Vista says that there is a problem with the connection but can't diagnose it. The only way to fix the problem is to restart the computer, and that only works until the comp again decides to crap out on the connection.
I do not get this problem when I hard wire into the modem, only when using wireless, but when I remove the ethernet cable and attempt to use wireless it won't connect, stating that it can't find any networks...then I must restart again.
Anyone have any ideas, short of leaving the ethernet cable plugged in all the time, on how to fix this?
