Recently I have been having problems with my wireless card loosing its connection to my network every time I either put a CD in my drive or just simply plug something into one of my USB ports. Nothing else is affected but the wireless adapter and I have tried using a different one from another computer of mine and the same thing happends.
Anybody know what’s wrong?
Here are my specs:
ASUS P4800SE mobo with latest Bios
Pentium 4 3.0
2 Gigs of DDR400
Antic smartpower 400watt
6800GT AGP
NEC DVD Burner
LG DVD Burner
Sony Floppy drive

Open the device manager and see if there are any yellow or red warning marks in especially in the optical drives, usb ports and adapters and ethernet adapters.

If there are, delete the devices and let Windows reinstall them.

As far as looking in the device manager it says everthing is working correctly.

Hello, I was having the same problems with mine, and I had two suggestions offered: Try changing the channel from the router, or go with PCI adapters (usb is less stable then the pci version).
