    Wireless drops out after antivirus soft removal

    I am using Windows Vista Business and i was having one infected virus on my system. I have removed it successfully from my system but since then i have seen something wrong with my wireless internet. Actually it gets disconnected at any time and i do not know what could be the reason behind it. How do i solve this wifi problem as it does not let me surf consistently.

    It might happen that there would some kind of virus on your system which would be still affecting your system and as you do not have any anti virus software, You will be not able to detect it. I have given you the link from where you can download an AVAST anti virus which is great software for securing the Windows Operating systems. You need just take care that check about the updates all the time on this software.

    This kind of issue can come if you have enabled an IEEE 802.1X authentication for the same network. Actually if you have selected the checkbox for the same settings on your system and if suppose there is no server then the connection gets disconnected. And it would be getting disconnected even after reestablishing it. I suggest you to remove the check from that checkbox.

    Here you have a steps to disable an IEEE 802.1X authentication.
    1. Go to the Start menu and then click on Run and then type ncpa.cpl.
    2. Go to the properties of your wireless network connection by right clicking on it.
    3. Switch to the Wireless Networks tab.
    4. Now go to the Preferred networks and here also go to the properties of your wireless network.
    5. Now switch to an Authentication tab and then disable an Enable IEEE 802.1X authentication.

    If you are using an USB wireless network adapter then there could be something related to the limitations of USB. If there would be multiple USBs on your system then it might be sharing the data bandwidth, power due to which your wireless would be dropping. You may try the following.
    • If there are more USBs then connect the wireless network adaptor to its own USB bus.
    • Disconnect all the other usb devices.
