my Wireless Turns ON and OFF periodically again and again in T41

Hi,

I am using T41 , winxp, when I turn ON my wireless , It connects and after some time again connects it means disconnection occurs periodically again and again.  "2100 3B card " is installed i think

ON , OFF , ON , OFF wireless

signal strength = excellent

Be convined that you router uses a fixed wireless channel. Automatic channel selection of the router often generates such an error.

 

Set the powersave settings to medium or minimum on the "Advanced"-tag of the wireless card in the device manager.

 

Do the same in Access Connections (if you use AC 4.x or newer)  in each wireless profile under "5" (if exists) on the "Settings for wireless networking"-tab or similar.

 

Sometimes it also helps to reboot the router and check the used wifi-channels in your neighbourhood.

Yes, in my case I set it channel 6, 

 

  • setting the power requirement to Maximum performance on every option
  • in "BIOS setup Utility " going to Power-> (changing from Auto to Maximiz )
  • CPU power management to Maximum etc

fixed my problem, till now the T41 does not disconnected itself. for 3 hours.

 

My card is "...2100 3b ..," it means that it only supports 802.11 a, b. 

for this which security settings in AP should me made now the settings are WEP , ?

next thing is that when securtiy level is none in AP , (TP-LINK (TL-WA501G) )Access Point. My T41 works smoothly without any ON , OFF or connect , disconnect.

The Intel 2100 can WEP and WPA. If  Windows XP Service Pack 3 is installed on a rather new installed system, it also (sometimes) can WPA2, if the wireless management will be done unter Windows but not Access Connections.

 

The very best way will be to purchase an Intel 2200, 2915 or Atheros/Phillips "11 a/b/g Wireless Lan adapter"  (with FRU number)
