I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite C650D with Windows 7 HP.
We have a Cisco Linksys WAG54G2 router.
Here's the problem:
I could be happily browsing the internet, and the connection will drop. If I go to my connections list, the SSID has gone. Nothing wrong with the router as the other laptops have stayed connected. To fix it, it used to be simple: start Linksys Easylink and click repair. But now, that doesn't work anymore. I can do that, and it won't find the SSID. So I restart my laptop, and it finds it again, tries to connect... fails and then the network disappears again. Today, it took 7 repair attempts, 9 restarts and a LAN cable to get it to connect again.
I have done a quick Google, and found many people having trouble with Toshiba and Linksys, but have come up with no definitive answer.
But here's the interesting part. If I go into my router logs, it says something about a failed connection from 192.168.1.100 (My laptop).
So, is it my laptop, or the router and how can I stop it from disconnecting. I have ticked "Connect even if SSID is not being broadcast", but it doesn't seem to have any effect.
