Connections Tray "Not Responding" = No Internet and Slow PC

    Alright an update from me.
    I reinstalled XP since I couldn't get Vista to work.
    I tried what is described on the Intel's page. In the beginning I thought it was working.
    But as soon I start an CPU intensive task, like a game as Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour, after 2-3 minutes the pc is getting slow again and Connections Tray has hung itself up again.
    This is soo frustrating.

    Should uninstalling the bluetooth application and drivers help ? The wireless and bluetooth chipset are located on the same chipset. Maybe that is giving conflicts ?

    Thanks

    Update 2:
    Uninstalling Bluetooth doesn't work.
    Now switching over again to Vista. Got a new cd, that should do the trick...

    Disabling PSP (the Intel article) has solved my problem. Its been over two days without a dropout - which hasn't happened for me since I bought the computer.

    I'm sorry to hear that it hasn't improved your situation. Keep me posted and I'll continue to provide whatever assistance I can.

    I do have noticed that if I don't use resource eating applications, like games, the wireless internet will work fine.
    As soon I start up a game like Command and Conquer generals (which runs great on this laptop as long connections tray isn't hanging) the WLAN starts to crash....

    Vista install is almost ready. Keep you posted.

    Update:
    Right, I got vista installed and I installed ALL Drivers EXCEPT Wireless and Bluetooth drivers, since Vista already found and installed them itself automaticly.
    Good news: The Wireless Network works fine now ! Which means it was a driver thingy in XP which didn't support my chipset for 100%...
    Bad news; Performance of my pc has gone down BIG TIME. On XP I could play Generals Zero Hour on the highest settings (with heat effects turned off) and on Vista i can play it only on the very very very lowest settings... that sucks really.
    I already popped in 2 gigs of extra ram, making it a total of 2,5GB but really it is a hell of a job slower than XP.
    But it's that or no wireless.. well.. I choose for this than, got to live with it...

    So, if you are a google user looking for a solution, I'm afraid the only thing I can give you is: Install Vista.
    Yep, that fixed my problem, but you might also try the CAM trick mentioned above, if you are lucky it works, but it didn't for me...

    Thanks for all the support here, really appriciate it !

    WiFi still working fine.

    Well if you do a clean install it wipes everything out. Now if you said you did 2 times it can be other things like is this a laptop or dektop. Did it come with this wireless card was it a cista computer by default.

    Well by your first post. If you got it from china then let me ask you when you got it back where you live did it work at all. It could of been a setting that they require.

    I had a job maintaining the wifi for a hotel which would bring in a lot of people that manufacture items from china each time they would come they could not use there wifi I had to take a look at there at there laptop and change some settings.

    But thats has nothing to do with this since it is working

    Exactly :D It was just a crappy XP driver in combination with "Vista Hardware"
