    I have had a problem for the past couple days. I have looked over many places on the internet and have not found a solution.

    The problem is my computer ASUS ul 30-a up until a few days ago was running fine on wireless until a couple of days ago when the wireless constantly was cutting out every minute or so and reconecting 10-15 seconds later. I have reformatted my computer and installed multiple new driver from the Asus website. When wired into the router the internet works perfectly. But wireless even directly next to it does not work. Their are 2 other laptops in the house neither which have had any problem dropping connections. Another thing I fine odd is that my computer is perfectly fine on my wireless at school. I have tried resetting the router and multiple router setting but still nothing. Renew release Ip, Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and show ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    In that environment you should use channel 1 to make sure there is no wireless interference.

    Your problem is most likely the insufficiently strong signal. As the Xirrus user manual says, for a "robust" connection you need -70 dBm or better.

    Changed it to channel 1 and no one in my house could connect. I am able to get a stronger signal, but this is where I have been using my laptop with no connection problems happening. Same problem occurs when I have my laptop directly next to the router so i doubt that it is the signal.

    Why? Is there a strong conflicting network detected in other parts of the house?

    Nope it is still by far the strongest network detected, but none of the computers are able to connect. Going to pick up a new router today see if that solves the problem.

    So I have picked up a new router and am still having problems. All the other computers in my house are fine with wifi. I am still disconnecting every minute or so and reconnecting automatically. This issue does not happen at my school network and I am fine when Plugged into router any more ideas?

    Are the other computers able to connect to the new router when channel 1 is used?

    Another device, such as a 2.4 GHz cordless phone or baby monitor, could be interfering. If Channel 1 does not help your computer try channel 11.

    I have tried channels 1 and 11 they work with the other computers but still not with mine. I am really confused why this happened all of a sudden I did not change anything on my computer. I still am able to keep a stable connection at my school but drop once a minute or so at home. Asus says I should send it in for repairs but I am not sure that is necessary.
