Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

Open Question

Having weird download patterns.

I'm trying to download a game over Steam. The download will start normally, and continue at the 600 kbs range for a while. After a couple of minutes, the speed will quickly decline. It would go from 650 to 560 to 400.. and so on until it hits 0. When it hits 0 I lose my wireless connection and need to unplug and plug back in my adapter and the same pattern will repeat. Is there a way to fix this?

SOURCE: Wireless 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 Connection1.gif 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?

SOURCE: Netgear wireless adapter

In this case can you please tell me what is your wireless router and how may computer do you have so we can check if this is a problem with the wireless router or with the netgear wireless adapter. because if you only have 1 wireless computer so the problem here is with the wireless router we may need to change some wireless settings like the wireless channel .....

SOURCE: netgear wireless adapter disconnects from router randomly

check for firmware update for your adapter...since it usb..u need to put it in open..i believed the USB extension is included when u purchased that.

do not connect the USB adapter to a USB hub unless the HUB is powered so that it can performed better. Connect it directly to your PC slot

SOURCE: USB wireless internet adapter disconnecting

Sounds like the usb ports are sharing an I/O channel. So when you unplug one usb device the CPU is being told that the USB port is not being used.....Maybe..... To test this, hardwire into a data cable and plug in different devices, next unplug a devise and see what happens. If you stay connected you may have found your answer. Unfortunately I don’t think a reimage or restore will fix the problem. If you get the same result try a reimage of your OS. Good luck.

Again sound like a mother board issue.

Questions to ask, When did I notice the problem (Maybe able to restore to the point the problem started.) and did I install new software or hardware when this happened?


Good Luck

SOURCE: connection drops and no available network

So you are using windows Vista and the wireless connection is dropping.
Do you have any other wireless computer which is working properly ?
If the other wireless is working properly then the problem is with the wireless adapter. Now you have already upgraded the drivers, then there is nothing much we can do.
If you do not have any other wireless laptop working wirelessly, then try to bring another wireless laptop in the network and check whether it works properly.
If you face the same problem on that computer also that means the router might be having problem

Free download games


First off I have to note that it is illegal to download games that you would normally need to pay for.

Now, if you are just looking for free games then I would suggest looking into Steam. They have several great free games as well as several in a good price range.

Steam not working with life cam NX 3000 microphone


Steam the video game platform? I don't believe the steam application itself is responsible for microphone settings. This would have to be configured in the game itself that you are trying to play. Can you provide more specifics on what game you are trying to play? Also this question was posted in the Routers section, it does not appear that the issue you are having is with a router per say. You may want to repost your question in the video game section as people are more in touch with applications like Steam there.

Yamaha FZR 600 not charging correctly with the lights on


I HAD THE SAME ISSUE. CHECK YOUR VOLTAGE OFF O THE MAGNETO, IT SHOULD BE IN THE 25V RANGE. IF THAT CHECKS OUT OK CK THE VOLTAGE IMEDIATLY AFTER THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR, I BET IT IS BELOW 14V. THE FZR IS PRONE TO HAVING THE REGULATOR GO BAD (THE OLDER ONES HAVE NO COOLING FINS AND THEY BURN THEMSELVES UP). THE BEST ONE TO BUY IS THE NEWER VERSION FROM A 1999 FZR, IT HAS COOLING FINS WHICH GREATLY PROLONGS THE LIFE. YOU HAVE TO DO SOME SLIGHT WIRING MODS, BUT NOTHING ANYONE COULDN'T DO. SEARCH FOR FZR REGULATOR UPGRADE AND IT WILL EXPLAIN EVERYTHING! I HOPE THIS HELPS! GOOD LUCK!

Drivers


These drivers are not easy to find. Have done some searching, but it's very hard.
You could try this one (seems to be some general driver), or another driver e.g. for KBS-8 or KBS-26.

Good luck
