Wireless problem when switching from Mint to Windows
 
Hello,

I am currently dual booting between Linux Mint 10, and Windows Vista SP2. Wireless works fine in both these OSes, but when I quit Mint and load Windows, 70% of the time my wireless stops working.

ie, it does not detect any wireless networks nearby, althought there are tons of them.

Restarting the wireless device doesnt help, I have to restart my computer at least 4 times for wireless to start working again.

And as of now, my wireless in Linux Mint has stopped working.

Any suggestions?

Odds are good there are too many WAPs broadcasting on the same (or too close) frequencies.
Run NetStumbler on your Vista setup to "see" all the WAPs running around, and note what channel they're all using.

Once you know what channel(s) everyone else is using, set your WAP to use a channel as far away from their frequencies as possible.

802.11 Frequencies per Channel
