I have a Linksys wireless adapter I am using on a Dell desktop and the adapter continues to drop off the network occasionaly. The adapter will not reconnect until I unplug and plug it back in then it reconnects automatically with no problem. Most of the time it will stay connected for a day or two but at times it will only stay connected for a few hours. There does not appear to be any pattern it's very random? Any ideas on how I can keep it connected long term?

check the power options. In the Control panel for the laptop as a whole and in device manager right click the wireless adapter click Properties and look for Power management.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
