Computer with Netgear WG111 USB2.0 looses conatct with Linksys 54g router every 5-15 minutes. Signal strength is 97%. Connection comes back up after ~30 seconds. Very annoying, any ideas? :tazz:

when you say

"looses conatct with Linksys 54g router every 5-15 minutes."

do you mean it is disconnected (ie in the task bar it shows your not connected) or does it just not respond to you trying to load up an internet page?(ie the link is shown as still active there is just no traffic going through)

because if it is the latter mine does the same, WIFI is not that gr8 atm the technology has to get better. atm mine has almost perfect reception but it does drop out sometimes, like i will be surfing the net and then it will become unresponsive and then i move it around a bit and it comes back lol. its a bit of a joke :tazz:

Yes, the task bar shows that it is disconnected. I bring up the Netgear SMART Wizard and it is scanning for a channel to connect to.

I also had this problem with my wireless PCI card and WRT54g Linksys router. i upgraded the firmware...downloaded newest drivers for PCI card. Then i turned off Windows Wirless Zero Configuration. My problem has been resolved. The wireless zero configuration looks for a "better" signal often and that kicks you off and then reconnects.

I went to start>search>services>windows wireless zero configuration and disabled it. This resolution worked for me and i am not a trusted tech so i hope this information is correct. Just letting you know my experience...if i am incorrect please someone correct me.
