Inspiron e1505 Network card issue..

by DeadMetalHead - 8/16/06 3:02 PM

Alright, i have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop,with xp and all of the service updates, and i have been having issues with the wireless card or something. Heres the problem: i turn on the comp, no problems, then i turn on the wireless, connect to the internet, no problem, then after 5-15 min's for some reason the little Wi-Fi light goes out and the internet stops. I go to show all connections, and it says that its still connected, but its not, i try to disable, it wont let me, i try to repair, it does nothing, i try turning the wi-fi switch back on, and it does nothing. The only thing i can do to get it to turn back on is resetting the computer. This has been like this since i recieved the computer. I have connected to a hotels wireless, mcdonalds wireless, and my brothers wireless, and it still does all of what i have listed.But the wierd thing is that when i got a Bridge from the hotel it worked... Anyways, any thoughts on what the problem is? Because i think its a faulty network card, anything else i dont know, thanks for the help. P.S. It has nothing to do with my service or router, because as i have explained, i have been around my city trying differnt Wi-Fi hot spots, including mcdonalds, and i still have the issue, no one seems to understand that, not dell or anybody, anyways... On a second note, i dont have a defective battery, i checked.
