    Hi,

    I just bought a Sony Vaio with Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100 Network Adapter.

    I primarily use the notebook at my home & office network.
    Home Network Router: Linksys WRT54G
    Office Network Router: Beetel 450BXi (ADSL2+Modem)

    The issue am facing is while am on to the network (mostly home network) suddenly it goes into limited connectivity & gets disconnected; while other PC's remain connected.

    And then you have to either re-install the Wireless LAN driver or re-start numerous times.

    This has been happening regularly. Pls assist in resolving the issue.

    Contacted Sony Vaio Support on this & even they were unable to assist. (n)

    After looking around with all possible settings, latest drivers etc. found this:

    This is a known issue with Intel Network Adapters caused because of the Power-Save Polling mode in the notebooks.

    Set my notebook per the settings & till now it looks to be working fine. :D

    Can you believe; Had to give this to Sony Vaio Support also as they too were unable to figure out the issue. :p
