Just bought an HP Pavilion dv7-3065dx with a Atheros AR9285. The wireless connection keeps dropping and i have to troubleshoot it every few minutes. Windows Network Diagnostics resets the adapter each time. Than a few minutes later it drops again. I have 2 other wireless computers that work fine when connected to the router including a HP dv9000. Already talked to tech support and updated the drivers and the bios. Any suggestions?

What is the Security on your wireless router? If it is WEP then there is an issue with Windows 7 and vista 64 bit operating systems. Switch the security on the router to WPA and see if that fixes the issue.

It is WPA and my HP dv9000 works fine with it which is running Vista 64 bit. Have worked a second time with Tech Support and they couldn't solve the issue either. I have a feeling i have a bad controller.

I've got the same problem.
HP told me to "install newest driver" et cetera, blah
I'm using new driver: 18.104.22.168 and it still drops connection!
But it is not the router problem, because Wifi adapter without connection lose a wireless networks also! [I mean I am unable to connect to any network after 15 minutes, it refuse to work].

I went out yesterday and upgraded my router from the Linksys Wireless N home router (WRT150N) which I bought a few years ago to a Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router from Linksys (WRT610N). So far it seems to have solved my problem. I have not lost connection since last night. I will update this in a few days or sooner if I start loosing connection again.

I have the same problem but with a dv7 306l and a athreos 9285 wireless card, It came with vista and it dropped out so i upgraded to wind0ws 7 and its got worse every 10 minutes it keeps dropping out.
I have tried the usual latest drivers blah blah, but still doesn't work. its not the router because of my dell works fine.
I have even taken off dhcp and given all my wireless devices a decicated ip address but still havn't cured the problem. I cant try another router because i am with sky and they will not give you your username and password, I have tried it around my dads house it still drops out.
I thinks this is a driver/ hardware issue

It's a hardware fault mine has done the same, HP change the card I installed it and now it works fine no drop outs on the wireless. Ask them for a new card.

I have network dropping with CQ61-210SQ and AR9285, Windows XP. Looks like network dropping happens only when N mode enabled in ruter. And with constant network traffic for long time, and not necessarily at top speed.
