I recently bought a Compaq V200 laptop, with XP SP2 built in, it also has a Wifi card (Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN) built in as well, it was all working fine until the beginning of this year I notice problems with it, when I connected to any wifi network it wouldn't load any websites or sign into my Instant Messaging program MSN. I have to restart my computer in order to get connectivity. :thumbsup: :flowers:

I've tried Rolling Back the driver, that hasn't helped.

And suggestions?

Hi I Hate Spyware.

I have to restart my computer in order to get connectivity.

First thing that comes to mind is that it may be going to sleep on you and not waking back up.
In device mangler, right click the network adapter and select properties.
On the Adanced tab, single click "Power Save Mode" and look in the box to the right.
If it says "On", change it to "Off" and see if it still does it.
Certainly not the only possibility but that's the first thing I'd check.
