Question about NetGear : WG111 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter, RETAIL (DSNGWG111)
Whenever I plug in my wireless adapter, it connects to our router for about a second with green signal, and then loses connection. This repeats as long asthe computer is on, with the adapter disconnecting and reconnecting.
Try these first:
change channels to 1-6-or 11. Make sure you change all of your wireless computers.
check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."
You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.
This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.
Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.
Cordless phones and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
Are you using the VISTA adapter driver on the disconnecting computer?
