Hi all so I have a Linksys WPM600N Wireless network adapter that is giving me trouble. It seems to turn on and off when ever it wants. I go to device manager and check the device but it isn't disabled, drivers are up to date, and I've uninstalled/reinstalled. It doesn't register any networks in the area so I'm assuming it is turned off as well as the light in the back is off. Not sure if the port is dying, network adapter is dying or if maybe a antivirus program is blocking it or something. Thanks in advance

Using Windows Vista 32bit SP1

It might be the wifi signal that you are referring here. Check the wifi signal bar. Usually the typical distance where it worked perfectly would give you an idea what is wrong most specially on having a wireless desktop.
