Zyxel g220 wireless connection fails

I've had this wireless adapter for awhile now, and had this same problem before, but I don't really know what fixed it. Ok here goes. Zyxel wireless in my room gets signal from the main computer in the basement. Time and time again the connection fails, then connects, then fails. Sometimes it will do it over and over, sometimes it won't fail for an hour. It's quite weird, I've rebooted, restored, checked cables, antenna, etc to no avail. Any advice?

    I have used this adapter in my bedroom successfully. Now I moved it to a room next to mine and it's very erratic. I have to keep doing a search for a connection, then pick my SSID, enter the Key # , configure it and save it However, this never lasts. It's connected then disconnected time and time again. And it's a poor connection for some reason. can't figure out what to do. Any advise??

It could be a distance problem, or interference problem. They do sell replacement antennas for your router and/or wireless card that will provide better reception.

Before you run to the store and waste money, I would search your favorite search engine for something called the "windsurfer wifi antenna". It is something you can make at home. Basically you take some cardboard and wrap it in aluminum foil. Shape it kind of like a dish and put one on your router antenna and one on your computer's wireless card antenna. It has been shown to increase your wifi strenghth by about 3dB. I did this and it seamed to help a little, can't hurt to try.

Also check for cordless phones and other such things sitting near your wireless devices, as that can cause electronic disturbance.

I lost the software disc to my ZyAir G-200 wireless Network Adapter


You can find the software as well as digital copies of the user manual and anything else included with the adapter at: http://www.zyxel.com/osearch/dl-search.aspx?mci_country=us&mci_lang=en&product_status=all&product=G-200&mtype=ALL&keyword=&submit=Submit

Most wireless adapter companies (and most companies that make things that require drivers to be installed for that matter) have repositories of all the software and manuals free to download on their site for just these occasions. They sometimes take a few minutes to hunt down, but I've lost CDs or papers many times and this tip saved my bacon in a pinch. Hope this helps!

Some wireless adaptors may encounter the compatibility problem with some routers when adaptor's driver is out dated. I have a Toshiba laptop that had the same problem. After I installed the latest driver, the problem resolved. You may need to contact manufacturer of the computer to get the updated driver. If you cannot get a driver updated, you can also try to lower the security to WEP.

Vista not recognizing driver from usb g220


Try turning off the Vista security feature known as User Account Control (UAC).

Go into Control Panel/Users. Select your own account then click the link on the left "turn UAC on or off". Disable UAC then click Apply/OK.

Now try installing the driver again. If you still get the "digital signature" warning choose the option to "install anyway".

The driver should then load. You would be best advised to re-enable UAC after you have finished loading the driver.
