Wireless N PC Card connection issue on Think Pad T42 after bootup

I installed a TRENDnet Wireless N PC Card (Model TEW-641PC) on my Think Pad T42 (model 2372-4WU). And every time I boot the unit I have to right click on the wireless icon and select repair so it will connect to my network. Why is this? Windows is not controlling the wireless connection (I let the utility that was installed with the card control the connectivity) and when I do let Windows control it, I can't get a connection at all. Once I repair the connection it works great until I re-boot. I can't figure out why. Need some ideas as to what or where to look to fix this.

Using a web browser on a PC that is physically connected to the router using a cable. In the browser box where you would normally type in a website. Type in 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.

Trendnet has a excellent support site for your model.

Im sorry but you will never get 54 on your card toughs are theoretical maximum speeds and I have never seen a system actually achieve them the actual speeds received by wireless devices are actually much lower and 11 is a normal speed wile running over wireless. Im sure this isnt what you wanted to here and I am sorry but it pretty much comes down to manufactures lieing by telling you it goes to speeds that can never be reached.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,

I had a TEW-421 card for a time, and it can not do WPA encryption, only WEP. It's not a driver shortcoming, it's the hardware in the TEW-421 card.

Sorry to tell you it's a dead-end, but at least now you know.
