My wireless disconnects (XP, Dell Inspiron 1501) SOLVED

January 18, 2013 at 07:47:03
Specs: Windows XP
I found that with my Dell Inspiron 1501 and Windows XP, that unchecking the "Let this tool manage your wireless networks" box, in the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility, stopped the wireless from dropping out periodically (and frustratingly). This utility sits in the bar at the bottom-right of the screen and supercedes the Windows connection utility (unless you uncheck the box).

This may be a different problem, though it's similar enough to perhaps help *someone*. I can imagine other manufacturers also have these wireless card utilities for their laptops.
