Easy solution.

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Everytime I have to repai ...

When you are about to follow the proper procedure to shut down Windows - - - First of all follow the proper procedure to shut down your wireless connection and turn off your transmitter.

That is the way it is supposed to be done.

Then when you next boot up, your wireless connection is turned OFF. After Windows has booted, then you enable your wireless connection, then you turn on your transmitter.

If you don't like doing it the correct way, buy a cable.

Shutting down or Hibernating?

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Just a doubt

I wonder if your gf is putting her laptop into Hibernation or even Standby.

I've used wifi internet for over three years and, by far the easiest method, has been to disable wifi prior to shutdown.

Being that it IS a laptop, it tends to make sense to shutdown your wifi, since you never know whether the next power up will be on mains or on battery power: the time taken to shutdown your wireless connection if you don't need it could remove quite a few minutes from your battery-life.

Also, if you don't get into the habit of switching the wifi off, ...on initial boot you have no control over when the wifi becomes operational (it could be active long before your desktop appears).

Given the plethora of hotspots across the world, a wifi set to be 'ON' by default, leaves your laptop open to intrusion on the same hotspot, or from crackers looking for unsecured wireless signals.

More importantly, you may boot-up on battery power but not go online. While you are working on your chosen task your laptop is available for connection to anyone else without your knowledge.

Ditch WZC

by robo_dev In reply to Windows Firewall Suks

Windows Wireless Zero Configuration is most likely your problem. Turn it off (disable the service) and let the Belkin application manage the Wireless connection.

WZC is totally stupid. It will try to connect to just about anything and succeeds at connecting to nothing.

There are some third party wifi connection managers..the only one I've played with is the AT&T Communication Manager, which seemed to work OK with either tethering my 3G phone to the laptop, or with several wifi cards I tried (Belkin, Lucent, Cisco).

Unfortunately the Belkin software on it's own is not all that much better than the Windows WZC, in my experience.

The simplest solution is to get a differnt wifi card, one with better drivers and connection management support.

I disagree

by demosthanese In reply to Ditch WZC

I have to disagree with you on the WZC service. I prefer it to many of the third part programs for 2 reason:

1) the WZC is easy to manage and gives very fast access to the individual network configs

2) 3rd part programs take more resources and in most cases have less fuctionality. Not to mention they slow boot times on the already cluttered windows boot.

My fix

by SirBarks In reply to Everytime I have to repai ...

When the computer starts it doesn't start all of your wireless services.

Just hit start->run,
type "services.msc" (no quotes)

and look at which services are started but not automatic (they will be set to manual). Change some related to networking to automatic and pow you should be up and running.

Automatically repair wireless network connections

by richlane In reply to Everytime I have to repai ...

You could try Wireless Connection Monitor. It is a desktop application that monitors your wireless connection. In the event of a problem, the software automatically resets your wireless network connection.
