Windows Vista - Internet Explorer Wireless Connectivity Problems

Asked By Sharon on 30-Apr-11 06:10 PM
I have Windows Vista 32 bit in a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. For the past week I am having constant problems staying wirelessly connected to IE. I am losing the connection as many as 8-10 times a day now.

My wireless router/modem is a Westell 7500 from Verizon for their DSL. I have rebooted the router/modem so many times.

I have worked with Verizon several times and they cannot find any problems on their end. I was told the problem is with wireless system which uses WLAN 802.11.

I have used Microsoft's support system and Mr. Fix It several times, as well as diagnosing and repairing the problem many times with Microsoft's built in support options including Windows diagnostic tool to repair network connection problems.

My drivers are up to date, everything is working fine, the SSID signal is excellent.

What is wrong? Why do I keep losing my wireless connection despite everything that has been done?

maybe it's time to bit the bullet and upgrade to Windows 7. Windows Vista could have been one of the biggest mistakes out of Microsoft in the last 25 years.

Hi,
    Follow below steps

    Go to command prompt  -->  type IPCONFIG --> Note down default gateway IP address -->In command prompt type

   [Default gatway Ip]  -t

Ex.
   1.23.12.125  -t

You should be getting continous reply without timeout message , In between  if you get timeout messages in command prompt that means something is wrong with your modem ( change it ).
