Hi. I have a Belkin Wireless Network adapter that always shows the signal
strength as "excellent" when connected. However so many times everyday
(mostly after the computer wakes up from sleep) I lose the connection and it
comes back after I repair it. Most of the times, Wireless Connection still
remains connected (still as excellent) when I actually lose the internet
connection. And sometimes I get "Unable to connect to the preffered network"
error. Repairing after either fault and connect again, the Internet Gateway
Icon disappears. I could never work out the patterns because sometimes the
icon comesback on its own after an hour or so, and sometimes after a restart.
I am very confused. I would appreciate any help. I am on XP with Service Pack
2, I upgraded Norton Antivirus with the firewall so I don't use the Windows
Firewall anymore. But the problem is exactly the same, before and after
stopping the Windows Firewall. (We have a laptop on the home network, that
one never experience such problems even when this computer loses connection).
