I have a HP Pavilion 9600 series laptop with the Intel 4965AGN card.  The problem I am getting is that when usign torrent or download a file from the internet such as a large driver etc the wireless connection disconnects and I need to reset the wireless connection to get it going again.  HAsa anyone seen this problem.  I have all the latest drivers running Vista x64 and it is really bugging me.  Tonight I was trying to download an 84MB file and after about 30MB it disconnected.  Frustrating as hell as that lost 30MB goes against my data count.  I know I could use a multipart downloader but that is a workaorund and doesnt solve the underlying issue.

I have a Wireless 802.11g USR9106 ADSL router and I can confirm that a direct ethernet connection works fine and so does the wireless on my Dell laptop which uses a different internal wireless card than the HP and only runs at 802.11g

Cheers

I am assuming that this is an internal card...!

I would be tempted to throw in a Live OS disk (possibly Ubuntu) and check if the problem persists. If so then the following could be the reasons:
1. The NIC is faulty (unlikely though), try using an external card to see if the problem is still there. If so check points 2 & 3 below
2. Signal issues; try moving to a few diff locations. Try changing the WiFi channel number of the router. Most routers are set to use 6 or 11 by default (I think), change it to a diff number. Also set your WiFi mode (in router) to G only.
3. Something is wrong with the Windows OS. Have you installed any software that could have made changes to the advanced OS network settings. Some torrent software give you access to advanced OS network settings as hope for better speeds.

hey guys,

I've got the same model in my HP dv6500 pavilion laptop and have to reset the bloody thing all the time! I havnt noticed the download issue but when I shut the lid or it goes into sleep mode I have issues....

Sometimes I can stream full movies to my ps3 from my laptop no worries so I think my issue is slightly different.

Would be really keen to sort this. I'm using a standard d-link DI-424.
