    wireless

    I was curious if anyone else has had this issue with wireless networking. Occassionally my laptop can see networks, but can't connect to them, everytime this happens the connection was interupted, usually by going out of range.

    I usually have to reset, then repair, to get a connection again.

    I am using a Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI Card internal card.

    It has to do with how windows works with wifi cards. Sometimes when the described situation happens, the card can get stuck in powersave mode, or some other mode after a network drops. Is there a utility for your card from the manufacturer?
