|I'm on an eMachines desktop with a Hawking Laboratories Hi-Gain USB Wireless-G Dish Adapter to connect to my family's wireless connection. I also have a Gateway laptop with a wi-fi card installed.|
Problem is, my wi-fi connection on my desktop will randomly crash, and then attempt to connect to the router again. If it does, it says that it has "Limited or no connectivity".
When I go to disconnect and then re-connect, the WEP key has arbitrarily changed to an 8-digit code (of course it's security locked with little dots, so I can't see what it is). This happens at random intervals, but never stays online without crashing for more than an hour.
All the proper drivers are installed, but I'm using Windows rather than the provided program from the router company to control the connection.
I've read that some people have this happen when using Vista, and the computer the router is connected to runs Vista.
ANY help would be appreciated. I'm at the end of my wits here with this thing.
