Intel Pro/Wireless 2200bg

By antuck ·
I have a client that just purchased a new Sony laptop with the Centrino Chip in it. It has the Intel Pro/wireless 2200bg card in it. The problem is the wireless connection intermintanly drops. What is really odd, is that the wireless connection shows it is disconnected, but I am still able to make an internet connection sometimes. Sometimes it will drop completely. When first booting up it always makes the connection, it is after about 5 min that it shows it has dropped.

I went to Sony's web site and followed there instructions for intermintant dropping and the problem is still there.

I did a google search and I saw that this wireless card does have some issues with it.

Has anybody worked with this wireless adapter? Anybody had problems with intermintant dropped connections?

that hardware is faulty . either the driver or the program running the wifi chip has a debug . until sony has a total solution , disable the inherent wireless from the bios and/or the xp command center . buy or use a usb wireless card . this way you can also see if there is an interference or range problem too.

Thanks for the reply. I searched and seems more people are having issues with the 2200. I'm going to try a PC card and see what happens
