Question about EnGenius EUB-362 (EUB362 EXT) Wireless Adapter
I've owned two of these devices now, and have the same problem. The device starts fine with windows xp. If I leave the connection alone completely, the signal strength remains constantly in the green, and all seems normal. However, once I start transmitting data with it (ie accessing online material) the device loses all signal after about three minutes. I'm in an area with a multitude of other networks running besides the one I'm using. I mention that because when before the device loses signal, I can recognize up to 6 other signals. Once I lose the signal I'm connected to, I also can no longer see any of those networks either. Using the repair function does nothing. Disabling/enabling the device fails because once I disable the device, the device manager is unable to restart it and gives the error code 10(device unable to start) The only way to reconnect is to unplug the device completely, plug it back in, and start the process over again. I have updated the driver and the software. This is happening with both devices of the same make and model. Thanks for your time :)
Get a cooling sticker pad from 3M and paste it at the back the PCB board of the 362 ext.
There is a newer version of driver , version 2.1 for windows XP.

The device refuses to work with usb2.0 ports on 3 different pc's.
The connection drops after 3 minutes and disappears from the site survey screen.
Engenius technical support claims they never heard of the problem before.
The only fix I found was to get into xp device manager and disable your enhanced usb
controller.Then with usb v1.0 the eub-362 works forever without a hitch.

Are you using the client software that came with the unit? If so, do not use it, use the native windows connection client, just use the drivers only.
Also make sure you have it DIRECTLY connected to your computer and not a hub, it seems to work best this way.
Finally under System Manger, make sure it is connected to a USB 2.0 port.

Tips for a great answer:
I'd suggest installing the device drivers in the Compatibility Wizard. Remove that hardware device in Device Manager, right-click on the driver executable/installer file and select the Compatibility tab; click the checkbox before Run this program in Compatibility mode for option and select Windows Vista in the list-down box; then try installing the device driver. In addition, you can use the Windows XP driver for testing.
If the problem still persists, please understand that Windows 7 is a new operating system (only the beta version) and whole driverstore has been reprogrammed; some old driver is not compatible with new OS. I suggest that you should wait for another period of time till the retail version is released and push the vendor company to upgrade their device driver. Thanks for your time and understanding!
