When I re-enabled wifi, the packets started arriving again....
Until Windows screensaver kicked in, then they were lost again - until I stopped and restarted Wifi :-O, when once again they started to arrive.
Looks like its related to screensaver then :-O - but I cannot see any screen saver/power management settings which could cause this :-O.
NB The laptop is NOT going to sleep - just turning off the display. No specific screen saver selected - just the default then I guess.
Hi Graham, I would recommend checking with the system manufacturer if this wireless adapter model was validated for your computer because the fact that this is a WiFi + WiMAX adapter could introduce some undesired effects.
Thanks for at least responding - but this 'answer' is worse than useless. It sends me on a paper chase through the DELL site where I cannot find if this card is 'warranted' to work or not :-((.
Basically - I bought a laptop - actually from Dell but that is irrelevant.I then bought a perfectly good WIFI adapter, and installed it into the Dell - as the fitted adapter did not support 5G. Its been working for many years now - quite happily. Its designed to a BUS STANDARD - so should be installable in any PC matching that standard.
I really don't see the point of your email - it does nothing at all to answer the question - just 'slippy-shoulders' the issue :-((.
Not impressed in the least with this response :-((.
Maybe I should STOP using equipment based on Intel products if you cannot (or will not) support them then.....
It was a simple enough question in the first place - and I did NOT need to be lectured about regulatory compliance etc.
