On Vista, gets knocked offline after a time of no use
Green light stop flashing and this requires you to replug the USB or restart. Anyone experience this? Have a solution? It is not all that uncommon to need to re-initiate a connection, but with this device there is not interface to refresh the connection--requires replug or restart, which is a pain.

the adapter only comes on usually when the xbox is turned on and booting itself up. try restarting the xbox over and over again and replugging in the adapter.If the light is red that meanes its on and running but cannot connect to your router or modem etc. if this is happening reconfig your connection so it recognizes your router.IMPORTANT: if you have security on your router you must enter everything in before you can connect. If your adapter still doesnt read your router you must be out of range or the router is not putting out a signal.
Try plugging it into your other computers. If it works that means it may be driver issues on your desktop. Now if it doesn't work on the other computer your device is bad. On wireless adapters packets get collided. After two years of packet collusion your adapter will go bad. Now these days adapter like that is cheap to get these days.
I installed my EUB-362 yesterday. I did install from the supplied CD AND the internet. When I saw that the supplied CD did not include drivers for Vista, I stopped there and then and connected to the internet with my other USB WiFi adapter. I continued with the install. As expected the install wizard said that it could not locate a driver. I let it "search" for the driver and Vista located a driver on MS WEB site and downloaded it. The driver appears to be for a Atheros USB 2.0 Wireless Network Adapter but works just fine.
Ine note: It works OK on a 10 fot USB extension but not on a 20 foot USB extension.
