Vista losing connection
Hi all - firstly, I apologise that this is a long shot i was wondering if anyone could help me out...?
I have a vista laptop on my domain at school. As probably usual, we have network wide start menu/desktop for the Staff group generally. But, on this vista laptop - it seems to be always constantly loosing its desktop asnd start menu. It's very intermittent! A log off/log on corrects the problem.
I am thinking this is a problem with a possible bottleneck in our network (we have Network Diag people coming in Monday coinsidentely- something our LEA provides ) but I was wondering if, maybe there is a vista issue, or if any one knows a fix I can use for this?
I would be so so so greatful!

Not an issue we've experienced on any of our Vista domain machines, and we have over 200 of them now.
Nothing in the event logs to suggest a cause?

Yeah looked through the event logs.
Its a tad annoying! May very well be that bottleneck.
Thanks for replying!

- Rep Power
It sounds more like power settings causing the connection to drop. We have Vista laptops with redirected desktops etc and had this problem for a while, changing the sleep/hibernate/hard drive timing has stopped it.
It also would not show up it event log as the behaviour is 'normal'
Worth a look....

I have had this issue with laptops I have tested Vista on.
A first step I always do now when building Vista laptops is I update the wireless card drivers to the very latest ones available. If an Intel card, I always download from the Intel website. As soon as I do that the wireless connects more consistently.
