On my windows XP computer I am wirelessly connected to the internet with my Airlink101 300n router, but recently I am getting disconnected.
The internet still works because on the computer connected via cable it never cuts out while the wireless one does. It also happens repeatedly, if I finally get connected again from trying to repair the connection like 20 times, it just cuts out again.

This problem just started happening recently and it really makes it hard to surf the web or use xbox live. Please help!

Edit: Sorry if I put this in the wrong place, I just moved it to networking.

maybe there is another router close by or even a wireless phone system. change the channel broadcast and see if that helps. is there a microwave close by?

I think caghan is on the right track. Sounds like interference. Since it just started happening, did you move the router? did you buy something recently and is it near the router? It could be another router, do you live in an apartment complex? You could download Netstumbler and it will show what wireless networks are around you and what channel they are on.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

I had problems with XP's wireless connectivity but not same as yours. I was able to resolve it by simply updating the driver of my wireless device installed on my notebook. Try updating your drivers maybe it will work.
