This is crazy, I just rebuilt my machine and everything works but randomly I lose internet via my USB wireless adaptor.

Just randomly I lose connection of it, I unplug it and plug it back in but nothing, I reboot and it's fne.

Any ideas?

Do you have the problem with the adapter in another computer? Are you using different drivers than you were initially?

Motherboard USB Driver ? ( like the VIA 4in1) ?

Power issue ? USB ports will shut down of too much power is drawn ( typically 500ma) - check device manager for disabled ports. The mobo USB driver may make the port a little more stable in regards to power issues.

Try dropping the transmit power on the USB w/less adapter.

SepticSceptic: check device manager for disabled ports.



Seems to happen when I download a lot of data, I'm trying to download a 298Mb file, it stops when I do. Otherwise it's been on all day today when i'm not trying to download it.

The file is safe, it's my own database.

So is there a disabled USB device in Device Manager when this problem occurs ?

Some USB HDD's will exhibit the same issue when they draw too much current on initial spin-up.
