Intermittently lose wireless access

1892 Views 20 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  champine53
I have a Toshiba Satellite a75, and I have started to lose my wireless conncetion intermittently. When I try to reconnect to my wireless network, it will (it takes about a minute to do so), and then 5-10 min later it is on longer connected. My roommates all are accessing the wireless connection without a problem on their laptops. I have tried to download the newest wireless drivers from Toshiab to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.
THank you,

Hey Champ,

I have a Toshiba too and began experiencing the same problem well over a year ago. My solution isn't a real "solution" but it allows me to stay connected when the computer is on:

>>Right click your wireless icon in the system tray, select "View Available Wireless Networks"
>>Go into Advanced Settings
>>Select the Wireless Networks tab
>>Check "Use Windows to configure my wireless setting"

Once the computer connects you, go back and uncheck the box.

This will keep you connected until you turn off the computer or the hard drive turns off (standby). At which point you'll have to do it over again.

Like I said, this isn't a fix, but it keeps your connection from dropping every fifteen minutes.

I've asked for help with this problem before on these forums and a couple others and didn't get a solution. Hope this helps you!

PS: If you have a Mat****a combo drive, be careful! They tend to overheat and will slowly break. I had to completely replace mine because it no longer read audio CDs, nor would it burn CDs and DVDs.
