Alienware M11x R3 - Wireless Connection Interrupts Every 15min

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Basically, there is one particular wireless connection in my house that my laptop disconnects from every 15 minutes or so. This does not happen with ANY other wireless connection (including the second connection set up for the far side of the house). So one would think "Oh, there's something wrong with that connection then," but here's the rub... it is only MY laptop that has this issue with the connection. The other laptops, desktops, smartphones, ipads, etc. never get dropped from this connection. This has been going on since I got the laptop in roughly late June of 2011, and I still have not found a solution. Any ideas on how to fix this issue? It kind of sucks not being able to use my laptop in my own home.


I have tried scouring the dell and alienware websites before coming here, but since I am no longer under warranty they aren't exactly... willing to lift a finger (unless of course I throw money at them tongue.gif.)



By the way, I use Windows 7. I would greatly appreciate any help smile.gif

Odds are you're using an IP address that's in use by another machine. That's what's probably causing the signal to drop. I usually make my machine use a set IP each time so this doesn't happen.
