    Hi,
    Can you tell me what causes a wireless connection to desingage & freese your computer up where even the mouse will not move.

    I have a wireless card & a freind is letting me go though his router.

    Sounds like windows is fighting a third party software for control of your wireless card.

    Best practice to let one of the two do this. Disable wireless-zero service, or WLAN AutoConfig (win7)
    OR Leave wireless-zero / WLAN AutoConfig enabled and disable or uninstall the third party software.

    You can start/stop services via START -> RUN -> Services.msc

    See that's what I mean, I had to try to write you have the day. The computer ,(or wireless) cuts off & I have shut it down & restart the computer. I'm running a windows xp ie7 on a gateway laptop.
    Like I said, the guy is letting me use his router it's in another room, but I get a strong pickup from it.
    When you said to shut the wlan auto config off were you meaning win's autoconfig?
    I'm sorry, I don't even know if this is where I'm suppose to write back.
    Thank's anyway, You tried!
