Default Odd wireless problems - 09-25-2009, 01:56 AM

Hey all,

I've been having some connectivity issues with my Dell Mini running xp sp3. Wireless will just drop out - however, it'll remain connected on the little toolbar, it just will stop transmitting/receiving signals. This happens without fail every time within the first 30 minutes of use. I can click on 'repair', and it'll then work fine (usually).

This is a fresh install of windows as my SSD had to be replaced. However, I was having similar drop out issues with my wireless just prior to my SSD dying too.

I was wondering - is there a way for me to figure out if this is a driver issue or a hardware issue without having to wipe/reinstall everything? Anyone else know of this problem? I'm currently running the default broadcom drivers - the Arcandye (sp?) ones don't want to install, saying I don't have the device plugged in or something..
