My computer: Sony Vaio SR490 laptop
OS: Vista 64 (ugh!)
Internet: Verizon DSL wireless
Whenever I turn on my laptop, I have to reset the network adapter through Vista in order to actually connect. Sometimes I can connect right off the bat, but a minute later pages will stop loading and I'll have to reset. This can happen a few times while I'm on the computer.
I tried uninstalling/reinstalling the adapter via Device Manager. That didn't help.
Is this definitely a problem with the router/connection, or is it my computer, or is it Vista? Because sometimes I have to power cycle the router to be able to connect too. I'd hate to think it was anything with my computer, since my system board is brand new (was replaced under warranty for unrelated issue). But if it is, I need to know because my warranty will be up soon.
