Hi everyone,
I really need some help Please!

I have a very well updated Laptop running XP well patched with IE7.
I have run all the malware scans and there is nothing wrong on the PC.

After exactly 10 minutes of the PC being on, wireless internet connection is lost, BUT:

Signal Strength states "Excellent"

I can't access any website at all on the web. (Except for "Facebook" for some odd reason?) I can't access it
after the 10 minute mark but if I'm already on it, I can navigate thru it's site without being disconnected, don't
ask me why

I have tried the following:

- Dynamic and Static IP setting
- Turned on and off windows firewall and rebooted each time
- Ran all kinds of malware detection and virus scans
- Disabled power management on network card
- I've tried different PCs on the same network and they're fine
- Tried ipconfig release and renew
- Tried repair connection
- Tried netsh reset
- Tried FireFox and other browers
- Logging off and back in doesn't help, must restart the computer to get another 10 minutes

I'm at wits end, Please Help!

And when you use an ethernet instead of wireless connection?

Possibly a corrupted non-Windows firewall or security suite. What one is, or was, on the machine?

Unless that leads us somewhere productive I suggest trying a Repair Install or a format and clean install of Windows.

I have reloaded xp from the disc. It comes with "zone alarm" which seems to be causing problems?
