    I have a:
    Gateway laptop Gateway Laptop
    AMD Turion 64 mobile
    Technology ML-30
    1.59 GHz, 448 MB of RAM
    Windows XP Media Center edition (service pack 3).

    I bought it two years or so ago. Since as long as I can remember I have had this problem.

    when I am on my browser (I use chrome, firefox, and IE) my wireless connection will cut out after a while. I have noticed that if I am on just one site (example: Pandora.com) it can be fine for hours. But once I start going to different sites, I eventually get kicked off. It can be any website, Facebook, youtube, etc.

    When I lose connectivity, I refresh my wireless connections and only the printer comes up. If I try to right click on the tray icon to repair internet connection, it freezes. I am guessing that this is a hardware problem. (?) Though I'm not extremely technical with computers, I know my way around most issues that can arise.

    I have reformatted my hard drive (twice) and all my software is up to date. I have run AVG scan and Ad Aware scan hundreds of times. Can anyone offer assistance? Thank you very much!
