Whenever I try to copy a large file over the network my wireless drops. This also happens if I even attempt to look at one of the S10-3T's folders, being shared via homegroup, with one of the other PCs on the network, that have large files in it.


The network adapter is Atheros AR9285.

I turned off 'Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power'

driver version is

there is also a Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter # 4 listed


I upgraded to 2 GBs, corsair

I uninstalled most of the Lenovo programs with only these left: NaturalTouch, EasyCamera, OneKey Recovery, Quick Start, and Screen Rotation


The wireless works perfectly for the web (never tried to DL a large file though), just drops when monig large files over the network. It will drop, then come back. I tried hitting Try Again after the connection drops dozens of times and it just would not work, would drop, then reconnect, drop, then reconnect, etc
