Operating System Version: XP
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Airlink Wireless USB b adapter

(Had same problem with netgear wireless usb b adapter)

I installed the driver, then rebooted and installed hardware.
Then it connects, low to excellent (it was very low to low for the
netgear adapter), then it automatically disconnects and starts
the connection manager again, reconnects and repeats the same thing.
Does that for a while, then it doesn't open again by itself anymore.
When I checked the device manager, it didn't show up, although it had
showed up just a while ago. Tried installing new driver from website
(only for the netgear adapter) - that didn't work. Tried reinstalling
but didn't work. I have no idea what the problem is. My connection?
My computer?
Please help me out. Thank you Smiley

Hi there:

Have you made sure that 802.1x authentication is disabled?
You might also consider running Windows Update and installing the XP
wireless update, which fixes some major bugs in XP's Wireless Zero Configuration modules.

Let us know how you make out.

Hello there

Your problem is due to the external radio perturbations.
- Check if you don't have any other wireless network in your area. If you have one try to change the chanel of your network.

- Check if you have an alarm (no, no i'm not joking. I know it's difficult to beleave but if you have one just try to disable it, and you will see by you self).

Explanation: usualy this problem appear when 2 radiofrequencies run at nearly the same timing in the same area.
Exemple: one network at 2 400 120 012 hz and an other at 2 400 120 020 hz if you put these 2 networks in the same area you will experience exacly the same problem as you meet at this time.
