My wireless connection has been working fine for some time (Dell Wireless), but in the last couple of weeks has developed a glitch that I can't identify.
When I log on the Internet connection is fine, but in anywhere from about 5 seconds to 5 minutes the connection dies, even though all the indicators continue to say that the connection is fine/active. I can repair the connection, but then it dies again in the same way. The usual time to failure is between 60 and 120 seconds.
I'm convinced the problem is at the OS level, as when the link fails I can no longer connect to my wireless router either.
At no time do any of the connection indicators in the system tray recognise that there's an error.
I'm starting to wonder if maybe some patch was released 2-3 weeks ago that may be causing this problem...
FYI, I'm still running the XP Home that originally came with my Dell XPS Gen 4.
I'm completely stumped at this point; any help will be seriously appreciated.
