Signal periodically disappears

ASUS WL-167g is connected to desktop Macintosh through USB2 connecter. On the window  Wireless Utility Site Survey I see SSID, BSSID Signal and  Channel and I see green hand shake.  Link Status also looks good, signal and Link Quality are good.  However literally in 2-3 minutes signal disappeared. To restore connection I need disconnect and connect back receiver WL 167g

Do you know if reciever WL-167G is using any type of password or wireless security protocol?

Is it possible that the router is set to only allow certain mac addresses to connect?

can you log into the router to check its records and wireless settings?

I have ASUS WL-167G v3 Wireless USB Adapter. It works well with my MacBook but when I connect it to my WinXP PC, it detects the two networks that I have in my house, but does not connect to neither. Both...


You mentioned that you have Windows XP SP1... You need to install at least SP2 or even SP3 for this adapter to work. If this computer doesn't have internet access at all, then you can usually get SP2 or SP3 on a disc for free from Microsoft.

Save it to your desktop --->Double-click the ".EXE" file. Select "Run." Wait for the wireless adaptor driver to install-->plug in the adapter -->restart your computer.
Plug the wireless adapter in another usb port than the previous time.

Connection problems with ASUS WL-167 G


Try going to "network and sharing centre" click "internet options" then click "connections tab" then "lan settings" check if it is set to "automatically detect settings". If this is clicked then maybe look through the guide or contact microsoft (if using windows that is!!)

Wireless asus adapter WL-167G can't connect to internet


For this its really not needed to uninstall the software log in to the router page and look for wireless settings and get the correct ssid and wep, and set the channel to manual and select  9 or 11 channel . if its in manual the connection will be constant always if not most of the router u will find wireless settings at the back of the router delete the wireless profile and right click on the wireless and view the available wireless network and get connected if u r using windows to configure the wireless  if ur using the asus utility scan the network and add ur network, delete the previous profiles and wireless key's are case sensitive
