Wifi connection delay

Hi,

I have installed Netgear WG111v3 Wireless-G USB Adapter on my windows 7 (64Bit) Desktop. I have updated the driver. The problem I found that it gets connected to the internet/network randomly. My wifi modem/router is working fine. I dont find any problem if I connect Laptop or Android phone over wifi to my router.

At times it gets connected to network. But sometimes or for most of the times it does not get connected. In this case if I restart the router, my pc then connects to the network. i want that my pc should connect to the network upon booting. But it does not. Every time I see a small yellow triangle on the network icon.

i tried to see the process that is involved for this process by using Process Explorer. But I dont understand that much and all I can see that there are services that are getting on/off.

I removed all the applications from the startup list. I re-installed the driver several times. The adapter is connected through USB.

How do I know the root cause or more importantly what way I can resolve the issue? Please advise.

Hi ThomasWernher,

I checked that and it's already tuned off.

Hi,

have a look in the control pannel -> power configuration -> modify the parameters of the mode
in the Advanced options, scroll in the list to have a look at the usb to see if you have the selective configuration options on or not....

cheers

Hi,
I have disabled it,  and post reboot it actually working. But I am little bit skeptical at this moment because many a time it did connect automatically on booting. That is why I wrote it connects randomly. Sometimes it does but for most the time it does not.

I will check that for some more time before I declare it fine. By the way, can you tell me which process or service is responsible for network service post booting the system?

Thanks a ton for the effort.

Hi,

i think that you've got a few and i don't know a lot about those services. But i'd go to check for the Workstation and netlogon services...

cheers.
