    after ~ five minutes in my laptop?

    I'll boot up and can get to the web via IE and Firefox. Works for ~ five minutes then I can no longer connect. AIM still works though. I can re-boot and it does the same thing all over again.

    I've run the wireless diagnostic and everything looks good.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    are you in an area with ALOT of WiFi ???

    I just moved recently to house with apartments/condos nearby and using my EXACT same setup as before that has worked flawlessly for 2 years, my WiFi has been dropping to my laptop and to my other bridge in my livingroom to my XBOX/HTPC...

    Come to find out, there are toooo many WAP's on channel 6 (default) sitting in my area, moved it to ch.10 and now doesn't drop at all.

    Solid again...

    CLIFFS : Try changing WAP channels/freqs
