    Could also be your WiFi router then. Make sure the wireless adapter on the laptop is not set to allow any kind of power saving or sleep mode. Does the router have a power saving mode? What model is it and does it have the latest firmware?

    I doubt it's the router. My girlfriend's laptop works with the WiFi. I think it has the latest firmware, I'm not sure. Also, I've tried turning power saving off, all that good stuff.

    Router specs:

    Model: DPC3939
    Vendor: Cisco
    Hardware Revision: 1.0
    Processor Speed: 447.28 MHz
    DRAM: 524288 MB

    Flash: 128 MB

    So are you are with Comcast? I would talk to them and make sure you have the latest gateway and firmware. Will not hurt and always best to make sure you have the latest equipment your ISP has to offer before chasing other ghosts.

    What OS does your girlfriend's laptop have?
