HTC WiFi Router - Frequent disconnects.. Why?
I am using HTC WiFi Router to get internet on my PC. I have a D-Link USB WiFi device on my PC end. First, this app works great .. when it works , which is often to say the least. The problem, WF Router disconnects often. I'll be browsing some forums, speedy connection and all.. then suddenly I click a valid page link and it's not doing anything at all. I look on the phone and it shows "Connecting " with the spinning circle... it'll sit there and will not re-connect. I have to manually "stop" the connection, then manually press "Start" to get it to work again. a few minutes later... it has disconnected yet again. Sometimes I can go a few hours before this happens. Sometimes (like the very last time) it wont disconnect when I hit Stop . It'll sit there saying " Stopping" .. I waited 2 minutes before I finally used FDC Task Man to end the process.. then I restarted it to connect again (which worked). On the PC end, it'll continue to show "Signal Strength Very Good @ 11Mbps" so it has to be on the phones end. There is nothing else running on the phone that would interfere with Wifi. Just messaging and Contacts. Same ol.. and no, I am not getting messages. It's usually late at night.
One other question related to the D-Link USB WiFi adaptor. This is one of those that looks like a keychain usb thumb drive. I have no idea on how to turn this thing off. There is no option in the D-link config, it just goes to Network adaptor properties/config. I used to just unplug it, but the very last time I unplugged it, my computer just up and totally restarted itself... yep right from the boot screen. When it finally booted back up, XP gave me a message about "Windows has recovered from a fatal error" .So, I'm not doing that again.
