I have pretty much the same problem as this person who had described his situation. In this case I have the NETGEAR WNDR3700 but it's not the router that creates this problem. Whenever I would go test my downloadspeed or when I am downloading on high speed, the connection would die a few seconds later and I get the message that there is limited access to the net. I have the latest driver and it didn't help...
I hope that anyone can help us !
Same problem here, HP Pavillion with 4965AGN and DIR-655 router, Win 7 x64. The problem seems common after researching web, with several other routers and other operating systems.
I've tried latest driver, still slows down or disconnects from N, while other N devices have no problem. There is no problem if I force G only (disable N on router).
I've been able to get the wireless to work again every time but only for a few minutes (without reboot) by re-installing the 126.96.36.199 driver.
Anyone have any ideas?
I have similar problems with the WiFi Link 5300 AGN on Dell Adamo running Windows 7 64bit. I lose connection to the NAT router and then disable and re-anable the WiFi connection to re-establish internet connectivity. I am using Intel Driver version 188.8.131.52 dated 14/05/2009. I downloaded the latest driver from Intel (this site, file Wireless_15.1.1_Ds64.exe) but can't get it to install.
There are error messages in the logs. I have tried using two different NAT routers, a Cisco Linksys WRT160N V2 and an Actiontec V1000H with the same results. My version of driver also loses sync with the router and will start transfering data at 50Kb/sec (should be 10MB/sec or better). I have a 60Mb/sec WAN with a GigE LAN.
Anyone know why I can't use the latest driver? There must be some trick to get the driver to load.
