    help please - my wireless connection keeps dropping...

    ...except it doesn't. i'm very confused as to what the hecky-thump is going on.

    i switch on the computer and IE/Firefox works fine. If i don't use either of themm for a few minutes, they drop the wireless connection. except i can still update things like avg and tomtom, and the little computer thing in the bottom right hand corner still says signal strength excellent, status connected. so to use IE/Firefox again i have to right click and then "repair".

    it's on my desktop using a usb wifi connection and it has only started happening within the last three days - it has worked for one year with no problems.

    can anybody shed some light as to what is happening here as it is doing my noggin in!!!!!

    sorry, forgot to say please.

    It might be worth doing a system restore to a point just prior to when you noticed the problem, to see if there has been i glitch in your system. Have you installed any thing in the past few days?

    bump - can any of the day people help with this one please?

    When i've had this when doing PC repairs for folk it's usually been Spyware......or a virus that's been resident on the PC.

    Download and run the free version of Lavasoft's Adaware 2008 (not Adware) and see if it finds anything :

    Then Run AVG and select a Full Scan and see if it finds anything ! :thumbsup:
