    The network here simply disconnects after some long time of use (couple of hours). Then if I click "Connect to a network" and the refresh button, the access point disappears...

    I use the connection with my PS3 and have no problems, so I'm guessing it is either related to the network adapter or Windows Vista.

    Both drivers and Vista are up-to-date.

    Already tried to contact Linksys (the router manufacture) and they oriented me to use WEP authentication, but I don't want to do this.

    HP live chat support did everything except understand the real problem.

    Does anyone have this problem?

    I'm going to have to second this problem, Same problem happening on tx-1327cl, using a cheap trendnet rounter, but everything elses connected to the router works ok. thus leading me to point my finger at something in the computer. So very fustrating when playing a game and the connection drops:mad:.

    Well, I don't know what to say, it happened again today, once again in the middle of playing a game. After I quit the game, same problem, had to restart the computer to get it working again. the wifi switch in the front did nothing. I'm beginning to think maybe an overheat problem? or something may be wrong with the card itself? Thoughts / Opinions please.

    I've got the same problem, it appears. Very frustrating as I can't leave something downloading during the night or when I'm off to school. I don't know if its a heat issue, I haven't been able to use my cooling mat for a while, so I can't accurately say if this might be an issue. Its very inconvenient and I'm wondering what it could possibly be.
    I'm using a Westell router, and all of my game systems and other computers work flawlessly with it.

    I've tried disabling through Device Manager twice now, and it hasn't worked once. I'm still forced to restart.
    Any updates or new ideas? This is a very frustrating issue.

    Well, my quickest fix is to standby the system. works again afterwards, so quicker than a restart, but still fustrating. Prescient, you think we got dud wireless cards?
