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

Yup, dats exactly why I replied with the solution.

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