I got an old Dell GX240 up and running with Windows 2K. I installed a dynex usb adaptor with the supplied driver and checked for updates and there were none. The wireless device works and I can connect to the internet for a short while and then looses its connecting even thought the signal strenth is very good. When I click connect to restore the connection, I get "Local Area Connection 2 - Network Cable Unplugged". So far I have:
Uninstalled and reinstalled the driver
disabled the ethernet connection since this will be a dedicated wireless desktop
Checked for updates and there are none
Turned off the security on the router
Not sure why the pc thinks it is a ethernet connection when it is wireless.
When I restart the pc, the wireless starts up fine and works for short while.
