Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Wireless connection disconnecting after 2 to 3 minutes
\015 My Gateway laptop is around 3 years old and I have been using wireless connection with no problems for all of this time. Suddenly when I turn on the computer the wireless connection only lasts for 2 to 3 minutes then does not work even though the icon on the computer says that I have a good connection. I have checked with BT, my provider which says that everything is OK. When I try to find available connections it says ''broadcom 802.11g '' is not present. Has anybody got any suggestions.Tony\015
Mine has been doing that too since i upgraded to the service pack 3 instead of service pack 2 i may go back to it
