wireless internet connection

2009-12-16, 2:10 AM

I have a Lenovo T-500 with new windows 7.0.  When I connect to the net the connection spontaneously drops off and then reconnects.  It happens several times within five minutes and continues.  Does anyone know how to fix this problem.  Lenovo and IBM support is pretty useless.  I would appreciate any help.

 

Thanks

It happens to my T500 too, I am using Windows XP SP2. The wireless connection drops quite frequently. Any suggestions are appreciated.

 

Philip.

Well, knowing what wireless card, what driver and what you are connecting to would be helpful.

Beyond that, have you tried updating the system to latest drivers?

I was having the same problem a few days ago. I tried updating the driver out of the device manager but that made it worse so i rolled that back. I then downloaded the driver off of the lenovo website and the problem has been fixed.

 

So i would suggest going to the lenovo site and downloading the Win7 wireless driver.
