This is no new problem, Its been happening for quite a while(probably since before I joined CF). It will happen on random adapters on randon OS's. Lets say I have, 3 adapters; X,Y, and Z. I install windows XP on my computer and use adapter X. It will randomly disconnect every 3-5 minutes. So I put adapter Z in it. Z gets a poor signal, but works fine, so I install adapter X with Z already installed. It works fine. Lets say adapter Z uses a PCI slot that I need, so I take both out and put in a new adapter, Y. It works fine. Now lets say I use windows 7. Adapter X works great, Z still gets poor reception, and Y disconnects randomly. I install service pack 1. Y starts working again. I use the updated drivers from each website.
If you need to know:
X: Realtek RTL8187
Y: Belkin Wireless G mimo N adapter
Z: TP Link WN550G
Would be nice if I could finally end the pokemon battle with my wireless adapters
