Constantly losing network connection

By Joskys ·
I currently work off an HP Pavilion ze5300. I have had little trouble with it until last fall. Suddenly, the wireless network would not connect, I tried an external wireless card and it connected fine until I rebooted and it would not connect either. After trying every troubleshoot in the world, I wiped out the harddrive and re-sintalled windows. Wireless worked perfectly for 6 months. Now its happening again. It will connect and then randomly every few minutes it cannot connect. I repair and am good for a few minutes and then lose connection again. After a few repairs, it will no longer repair. When I go into properties I see that my WEP key is erased and that the box that says key is provided is checked. So I re-enter the key and I am fine again for about 5 miutes. The light on the wireless connection sometimes is not lit when I am connected and sometimes is lit when I am not. Windows always locates the network, but can't stay connected. I need some ideas... is this a virus? a bad driver??

Wireless management software

Are you using the wireless management software that came with your wireless card or are you using the internal software from Windows? I've had better luck with Windows' internal software than the software from the vendor (including Intel, Linksys, etc.)
