So, I have a year old Gateway Laptop with these specs... Intel Centrino Processor 1.6 ghz 80 GB HDD (2 partitions - XP Pro and Vista RC1) 1.5 GB Ram I am a Comp Sci major, but for some reason cannot fix my issue. Anyways, it refuses to stay connected to the internet or it is EXTREMELY slow. It is connected wirelessly, and I know for a fact that it is not the network, as our wireless iMac works perfectly fine! Here is a typical scenario... 1. turn on the computer (xp or vista, it makes no diff) 2. internet works fine for first 5 min 3. all of a sudden, no page loads 4. i check the network connections, and it says it is still connected with a good signal 5. after 10 or 15 minutes, internet works fine again 6. internet only stays on for 3 min this time.. It continues looping until the internet is off completely, and only a restart or a "Repair" will fix it. But after 5 minutes, same old crap! I do not understand what is going on. There is no virus or spyware on it at all, so I am open to ANY suggestions!
