I inherited an old Dell D420 which is pre-installed with Win XP 32bit:
often the wireless connection to the office broadband drops & I
have to right-click on the wifi NIC & select "Repair" & this would
restore the Wifi connection. If I attempt to connect to one of the
scanned/detected Ssid, usually it won't connect & it requires the
"Repair" to connect.
This Wifi on this Win XP is currently managed by Windows but I
found it has an Intel PROSET installed.
Is Intel PROSET more stable or letting Windows manage it gives
a more 'stable' wifi connection or it's the same?
I plan to run batch (.bat or .cmd) script every few mins to check
its connectivity to internet & if there's no connectivity, the script
triggers a "Repair" : in another EE thread, an expert has found
that there's no such command for Win XP though there's a
command for Win 7. As the laptop has Intel PROSET, is there
a command to do this "Repair" ? or at least "Disable" & then
"Enable" the Wifi NIC? Pls give exact command
