I have always experienced compatibility issues with my netbook, an MSI Wind U130, when trying to connect to the internet via my router. It sometimes connects and when it does it lasts for ages, then it disconnects. Randomly. I ran Windows Network Diagnosis and this is what it churned out (if it is any help): pastebin.ca
It reported that the "default gateway is not responding" which I understand is something to do with the router or how my netbook connects to it. All of my other wireless stuff runs fine on my network.
I am really getting annoyed with it, hope you guys (and girls) can help me. : )

Is this just your netbook - does this happen on any other devices - It could be the problem of overheating and stuff
If your netbook overheats and the cooling fan is next to the wireless receiver then that could be the problem because it can trigger a wire to stop operating

Here are a couple of issues I had that caused random drops from my wireless router: 1) I had my router situated too closely to my satelite tv reciever. As soon as I moved them a few feet apart, my connection cleared. 2) I began having random drops with no apparent reason. I finally figured out I was not receiving "clean" power to my house. As soon as I put my router on a UPS, the issue cleared up. The UPS alarm sounds periodically, but the connection remains stable now. :) These may not be the problems you are experiencing, but I thought I'd share them just in case. Good luck!
