Wireless network and vista

  ACOLYTE 02:27 25 Sep 08

I have a friend who has windows vista,he is not very computer savy and as asked me to help him with his problem,he is running windows vista and has a wireless network set up to go online,however it appears that vista scans for new wireless networks every 60 seconds,and this causes him a great deal of lag and somtimes connection loss,he asked me if i could help him turn this scanning off,but i know nothing of vista,i have looked online for answers and as far as i can tell it cant be turned off,unless any one here know different and can tell me how to turn it off?.
