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

    Thanks it worked, it seems I will to increase the signal of my router to ensure the signal will reach the PC to where it normally it is. (I don't have another telephone port so I moved the reciever)

    Thanks

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.

As you mentioned, your Compaq Presario MV520 is using Windows 98 OS. As we all know, dial-up connection is the only available internet connection at that time so obviously Win 98 has dial-up LAN connection. However, you wanted to have wireless connection on that PC so you need to install a wireless adapter to that PC. First of all, most wireless adapters that are being used for desktop PC are wireless USB adapter, so you need to have a USB port on that PC. And also, you will need to check if the software for the wireless adapter will be accepted by the PC because since the PC is using Win 98 OS, we are not sure if the firmware of the wireless adapter will be compatible to the PC. Basically, my answer would be not possible.

This is not a problem. Wireless connections sometimes tend to be inconsistent. Try closing the distance between your laptop and the wireless network adapter.

Do you have a good signal strength with the wireless USB adapter?
If not try moving the wireless router away from walls or metal objects and cordless phones, locate the wireless router higher.
See if there is a later driver for the wireless USB adapter, if so download and install it.

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.

The router could be crapping out on you. Hit the reset button and see if that solves the problem. If that don't work uninstall then reinstall the system. If the problem remains contact your internet provider to see if it is on their end. If all else fails buy a new wireless system!

Hello! I recommend that if you have a second desktop or laptop try to install those devices on it, so you can check if your old PC is the source of the problem or it is one of the devices. I think the most probable reason for this could be a power failure on that old desktop pc, that results on bad management of USB ports
