Hey Everyone,

For the past month i have been experiencing problems with my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop running windows XP. For some reason my laptop connects to my network for a few minutes then disconnects, then it reconnects for a few minutes and disconnects. This happens repeatedly. I replaced my old Linksys WRT54G v.8 router with a DLink DIR-655 N Router thinking this would solve the problem but it didnt. I also positioned the new router higher than the last one, about 5 feet from the floor. The drivers for the Intel WiFi Link 5100 Mini Wireless Card on my laptop appears up to date, the current driver version is 13.5.0.6 from Intel. I don't experience wireless connection problems with my iPhone, apple tv or Xbox 360. Additionally, my DLink routers firmware is up to date.

Anyone have this problem? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Have you tried connecting wirelessly with the laptop only on the home network?

Try using only the laptop connecting wirelessly on your router first to check on the problem. Log into your router settings and try using mixed mode for b/g/n(if available).Try also changing suggested channel for your router.
