Make it a warranty issue.

Since no make, model or details were offered this looks to be your answer.

Check Two Things As Well..
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / February 15, 2008 10:04 AM PST

We cured one such problem here by updating the chipset/motherboard drivers and the wireless adapter drivers. Since you didn't tell us the brand name, model number, motherboard type, etc., there's not a lot of other information which we can provide.

I see that you've posted problems in the XP AND Vista forums.. Hopefully, there are different computers using different operating systems?

Hope this helps.
