wireless laptop keeps dropping connection!!

By taitie ·
I recently bought a laptop and set up a wireless connection on my main PC and the laptop. The main PC is fine and rarely drops connection and i can surf the net to my hearts content, but the laptop wont remain connected for more than 5-10 mins at a time. I can be on an ebay page and then click to look at something and next thing I know the page says internet explorer cannot show this page. I check the connection and it says limited connection so i have to go into connections - disconnect and then reconnect. Then its fine and i can look at the page. The main PC has windows xp, the laptop has Vista. Please help me because its getting very frustrating!!!! my mate has connected his laptop with no problems at all and he has xp on it so is this a vista glich!!!

Maybe Wireless nic

Sounds like to me this could be your wireless nic card. I had an incident like this not to long ago where the laptop would keep losing connection. Replaced the PCMCIA wireless adapter and fixed the problem. Hope this helps.
