Perhaps it's me, I didn't see what version of windows the laptop is runnning.
Since some versions of windows don't\can't run with high security levels.
For example I'm using Windows 7, Vista and XP (in various versions) With mixed Wifi capabilties
My security mode is set at WPA auto.
802.11 mode up to 300 mbgs
802.11N Band 2.4 Ghz
My signal is a mixed bag of monkey's which I've suffered for a long while, despite having the 60 SUPERHUB fitted a couple of weeks,which I work alongside my Belkin Router (with two networks !!)
The above settings are what were set up by default, and I've not changed them.
I'm totally non-technical but every little helps good luck.
Why I specifically flagged this up, is because years ago when I had Windows 2000 & XP I had to lower the security to WEP because it didn't have the capabilities of XP higher levels. Hope that makes sense.

right, been trying a few things.
dozer 167 I unticked Firewall Features and also IP Flood Detection,
And.... We have Wi Fi !!!
it instantly showed up and connected.
Will keep my fingers crossed it stays!
Will update to let people know if that seams to have solved things.
We did have it working the other night, but it did drop out after a day and didn't return, so im not getting too excited

Glad its working now, that latest realteak build of the driver should be here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.
Note that device id you gave me appears to pertain to a pci e wired network adapter.

I was plugged in when i looked that up....
the laptop seams to be working fine now
it's just a case of the Wi Fi remaining stable
sorry for my naive nature, what do i do with the link...?
is it an update?
thanks again guys,
all very much appreciated! :-)

The link is for the latest build driver for your Relteak based PCI-E wired card, however if your issues are with wifi and not wired its not going to help and i would need the device id of the wireless adapater.
That said if its working now, the old adage of if it isnt broken.. lol if you suffer stability issues let me know.
I would advise turning off the flood and firewall protection, that said it maybe your tripping it out by something your using that is maybe falsely triggering the detection, p2p might have this effect.
The other answer to why its working now is if the router is still set for auto it might have hopped to a better channel, in which case the firewall and flood protection settings didnt actually make a diffirence.
I would consider manually setting the router to what ever channel its set to at the moment (as it appears to work) and then turning back on the firewall and flood and see if it gives you the same issue.

Wi Fi has now been working fine for 4 days !!! on all devices!
manual channel selected (i'm running ch13) (used SSIDer to find clearest channel but still tried out a few different channels to source a more stable channel)
2.4Ghz (as i phones do not suport 5)
deselected firwall features, ip flood detection, port scan boxes in services
Hopefully this may help others
And thank you to the people on here for taking the time to read my post and help, it has hugely helped!!!
ps. Plazma; I was already manualy selecting channels when i deselected Ip flood and firewall boxes
had been on Ch13 for a while as found that to be better, even tho other channels appeared to be clear.
Sorry i'm not a computer techy, what is p2p ?
thanks again for your time and help! very much appreciated
