    Okay, i have solved my previous problem but now i have another problem. My wireless network disconnects after 5 - 10 seconds when i am connected to access point. Even sometimes after i try to connect to it, wireless network just disconnects straight away. I have Windows XP Home Edition.

    You need to post details about the network, specifically the exact make and model of the router to start.


    I'd also like to see this.


    Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework. For machines with no Internet connection, download this NET Framework 3.5 Full Package on another machine and transfer it with removable media to the problem machine.


    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

    Usually i connect to another person's router "012-smile", so i am kind of stealing their bandwidth, but it doesn't matter if i connect to my router or someone else's. Disconnections happen always. I think that other person is using Edimax router.

    No "kind of" about it; it's stealing. Closing per our Rules, that you should review:
