Hi

Got a Intel Core 2 Duo with Vista

Everytime a memorystick or other usb device is plugged in the wireless disconnects, I don't know why this is happening any suggestions? Not after quick-fix's like disable or enable.

DO you have the newest drivers for USB chipset as well as wifi ?

DId you try disabling anti-virus temporarily.

it seems the usb driver conflicts with the wireless; check their IRQ settings, or change it

Commented:
Yes I understand, But during the installation of the driver, the service in windows(Wireless Zero Configuration WZC) is also active, and the only way to disable is to open services window and disable it.

You can also find the WZC in your wireless configuration in the device properties.  IRQ settings can only be reconfigured in early versions of windows.

Disable WZC in windows services.
Uninstall your installed chipset drivers
restart.
Uninstall your bluetooth device driver.
restart
Install first bluetooth device driver.
restart
Install the chipset drivers.
restart
restart


Great is our GOD.
