Any advice on how to go about this? I'm unclear how to differentiate between Windows management of my Wifi connecion and the Intel software..
That is certainly a better way of doing it than I came up with! Alas it seems this has not fixed my problem either. While my connection is definitely more stable, it still drops after a period of time, and I'm unable to connect. After much troubleshooting today I've found that if I simply change the wireless channel on my router, my laptop connection "wakes up" and is enabled again. It lasts for a while, and then drops. I'm still stumped.
