2Wire USB 802.11g adaptor on XP: drops wireless periodically

I had AT&T Uverse installed about 1 month ago. Overall it's 'ok' service, not great.

I have 1 problem-desktop connected wirelessly. The symptom is that is periodically drops the connected status to the 2Wire Wireless gateway. I try to 'Repair' the adapter in XP, and eventually have to hard-reset the PC. Even shutdown>restart option just hangs at the "Shutting down..." screen in XP.

This PC worked perfectly before installation of this USB device, and I'm using the latest driver on XP SP2. Before, the desktop was using a LAN cable connected to a Linksys router.

Any ideas why the USB device would prevent the re-connect or reboot of the PC if the connection to the wireless router is disconnected?

When you get your computer connected, set the wireless channel to 6 and disable wireless zero configuration that will stablize your connection

Possible Solution:

  1. Login to the gateway's Management and Diagnostic Console:
  2. Go to Wireless under Local Network
  3. Change Maximum Connection Rate to 11Mbps
  4. Save by clicking Submit
It worked for me. My connection was fine on one computer, but would drop out several times an hour if my other computer was connected. It's been fine for a couple of hours now. Finger crossed.

Sony UWA-NA1 - no available driver for Windows? what specs does it have? It seems that with a Giga Juke Hifi-stereo, it will only communicate with WEP encryption, but the Wireless Giga Juke player station...

I found it! Sony UWA-NA1 USB Wireless Adaptor is a OEM products of Quanta Microsystems Inc, it's using the same USB adaptor as Ralink RT73 USB Wireless LAN card with RT2571WF chipset. I did it work ok in window 7 64-bit. But in the link below, its support XP, Vista as well.
1. Download Drivers for XP/Vista/Win7 here: Ralink RT257x/RT2671/RT520x (RT73 series USB Wireless LAN)
2. After download it, run it to install the Ralink Wireless App, check for the driver only. When it done, find the folder it has installed. 3. Open device manager in window managerment, choose the Wireless USB (have no driver with yellow !), right-click, update driver software..
3.a Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer". Find the "Network adaptor" in the category devices list, click on it, OK.
3.b In a new window name "Select Network Adapter", choose "Have Disk..." then browse the path of folder Ralink has installed. Your will see a file "netr7364.inf" (may be in XP-32bit or Win7 32bit you will a difference *.inf file). Click on it, click open, then OK.
3.c In the left box, find Ralink Technology Corp. click on it, the find RT73 USB Wireless LAN card, then click NEXT, a "Update Driver Warning" pop-up will appears, just click yes. Then windows will install the driver for Sony UWA-NA1 as "RT73 USB Wireless Card". Good luck! (You may try another devices in the list at your own at risk)P/s: Sorry for my bad english! English is not my primary language.

I need help installing my 2wire wireless adapter card.

I used this one:

This document describes the procedure to install driver for the 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter under Microsoft Windows, and to run a wireless configuration program to configure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to work with a 2Wire HomePortal or OfficePortal wireless gateway. These drivers work under Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, and XP.

STEP 1 - Driver Installation
1. Make sure your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter has not been connected to your computer USB port.
2. Double-click on the file to run WinZip Self-Extractor. The driver installation files will be placed in your hard disk in the C:\TWWUSB_TEMP directory
3. Connect your 2Wire Wireless USB Adapter to an available USB port in your computer. Windows Found New Hardware Wizard will startup.
4. Select the option to search for driver in specific location. Specify C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP as the location of driver.
5. Follow on-screen instruction to finish driver installation.

STEP 2 - Wireless Configuration
1. Run the program WirelessCfg.exe in the directory C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP. You can do so by clicking on the Windows Start button and select Run. The Windows Start button is typically at the lower left corner of the screen. Type in C:\TWWGUSB_TEMP\WirelessCfg.exe to launch the program.
2. Follow on-screen instruction to configure your wireless setting. Enter the serial number and encryption key as they are printed on the bottom of your 2Wire wireless gateway.

Suggested Laptop Wireless Adapter For HIGH SPEED INTERNET

I would go with card slot adapters, you can find many different ones but I used Dynex 802.11G card even running Win98, I've seen then cheap on sites like eBay. You can use acble and wireless at the same time and with 6MP, you will not notice any speed loss unless you are running live feeds on all 3 computer
