What a great website. I just registered but I have already found what a great resource this is! I want to say that I am more experienced than your average person but I am by no means an expert. So I will apologize in advance if I don't come across as crystal clear.
I own a:
Gateway laptop Gateway Laptop
AMD Turion 64 mobile
1.59 GHz, 448 MB of RAM
My problem is I cannot connect to any wireless network reliably. I can stay on an individual web page for as long as I want but it seems that when I start surfing I get disconnected. I Mostly use Firefox, but also IE and Chrome.
When I get disconnected, There are no longer any wireless networks recognized. and when I right-click the system tray icon to "repair" it freezes and I have to reboot.
I have had Best Buy's Geek Squad look at the driver that seems to be fine. Someone suggest I try Open DNS, which I tried, but I'm still not quite sure I understand it. I have tried using a wireless adapter but the problem remained. I have reformatted my hard drive (twice). I also tried renewing my IP address, among maybe some other things that I have forgotten.
What are the next steps to take to resolve this? Can I run some kind of analysis for you to look at? I have owned it for approx 2 years, but it has been ongoing (but getting worse) since approx. 6 months after purchase. Thank you.
