Wireless will not connect.

I have a Z575 that I use the wireless adapter on at home.  We have a very slow connection (satelite) but it appears to work OK with the wireless router..  I have to reconnect occasionally.  When I try to use it at a hotel or other location,  it either will not connect at all (even though it see the router in the wireless connection status screen) or connects for a short period and will not reconnect when it drops.  Running diagnostics at the time of failure comes up with either the adapter or the access point has a problem..I find it strange that the wireless appears to work okay on a slow connection but not on a high speed one.  Can't seem to find an undated driver for the atheros  AR9285 adapter that device manager says I have in this computer..Thought if I could update it that might help. Any other advice?

Re: Wireless will not connect.

After I posted my original question, I went in and ran "update driver" through device manager.  Microsoft says I have the latest.  It is ver 9.2.0.115 dated 11/24/2010.

And we're back...
