Question about X-Micro Technology XWL-11GUZX (XWL11GUZX) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Connection failure after period of time

I'm having a problem with my USB adapter, when I first connect it into the PC or when the PC first turns on the adapter will work fine and connect to my BT Homehub Wireless Router at around 57% signal strength. The problem is that it will randomly lose the signal of the router and will not be able to pick it up again until unplug the adapter and plug it back in, at which point it will work fine until it loses the signal again. It isn't the adapter because it works without problems on other computers nor is it the router because the other computers in the house's network have no problems. As suggested elsewhere on this I tried changed the router's channel to reduce interference but I result with the same result. Any help would be greatly apprecated. Thank you

Re: Connection failure after period of time

If it's possible try moving the router to another telephone point that is nearer to the problem reciever. Unfortunately all sorts of objects can divert the wireless signal, something as simple as a door. If your wireless adapter picks up a signal of 57% it may also be very low on the 'bps' transfer and may only show as limited or no connectivity. The signal to the router may be average but it still has to transfer data to enable a network and internet connection.

I have a wireless router hooked to my computer & my son recently got a wireless-G USB adapter so that he can play his xbox 360 online. Will this work, or will we have to put the router on the xbox...

XBOX 360 will only work properly with a 'genuine' USB WIFI adapter designed specifically for it (and at an over inflated price IMO!).
One popular way to play 'network' via the internet is to connect the XBOX 360 to your PC via Ethernet cable and have the PC connecting to the internet either via another ethernet connection or more likely via a Wifi connection which could be via your USB adapter connected to your PC and talking to your Wifi Router)

Problem with netgear usb adapter

Use the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration to manage the connection NOT the supplied software. To enable it go to the Control Panel, then Administrative Tools and finally double-click on Services. From the services window you will want to scroll to Wireless Zero Configuration and right-click on it, then click Properties.
From the Service Status area choose Start to start the service. From the Startup Type drop-down menu, choose Automatic so that the service starts up the next time you start Windows XP.

Periodic Lost of Conection

I experienced this problem before, what mine turned out to be was that when I configured the router to accept a passphrase the problem would appear it worked fine without the passphrase but this is not secure at all. I tried a few things, but nothing worked. I ended up getting a NetGear Router.

Hope this helps
