Windows XP SP3 - Wireless internet connection dropping

Hi all,

I recently had problems with my wireless internet connection continuously dropping every 3 or so minutes. After much investigation, firmware upgrading, driver upgrading etc etc, I uninstalled Win XP service pack 3 and - hey presto - everything back to normal.

From further internet searching, this seems to be a common problem.

Just wanted to pass this on in case anyone else was having the same trouble.

Andy.

Apologies to windows, the roll-back of SP3 only solved the issue temporarily. After much more diagnosis,the problem appears to be with either my router or my USB adaptor... :cry:

Changed the channel on my router yesterday - I've had no trouble since. Hopefully that's not coincidence...http://xkcd.com/627/... this sums it up. Except I forgot to stop after 30 mins... :roll:
