Unstable wifi adapter?

Postby Hinke Poot » Mon May 05, 2008 8:50 am

Yesterday I was working on an Amilo notebook (of a friend) with an unstable wifi connection. After switching on the notebook it was a matter of chance whether the wifi adapter would appear in Device Manager. Of course the notebook could not find a wireless network if it had started up without detecting its wifi adapter. In that situation the only workaround with a reasonable chance of success was to restart the notebook. Whenever the wifi adapter reappeared in Device Manager, the internet access turned out to be fine.

It is an Amilo Li 1718, with wifi-adapter Atheros AR5007EG. The system is Vista (factory installed).

Is this instability a hardware problem of the wifi adapter? I there a setting that might help?
