Sick of repeated ''repair'' clicks

by shafiqkhan31 / October 25, 2006 10:20 PM PDT

I have been using wireless Internet access for some time though have no real expertise. Most of the time it works fine, at other times ISP helped and things worked.
I have a D-Link Router and D-Link adapter. no shared line.
I have moved the computer which worked from the adapter to a different place, which may be a touch distant from the reach of router signals. Although my iBook G4 using its Airport Extreme works fine at this distance.
This computer (PC with adapter) works ok for a few minutes and then the connection drops. I right click the adapter icon and a box appears to offer me the opportunity to click again on ''repair'' and in a few saconds it is back on song.
Is there I could do to stop this disconnection so often?
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
