Question about 2wire (1000-100052-000) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
I am using a 2wire router and embarq dsl modem. The xp pc keeps dropping the link I have tried both wired and wireless on it. Works ok for short time then loses connection. I have another linux pc and it stays connected even while the windows pc has lost the connection. Any ideas where to look?
I am wondering if it is a heat solution or problem with the modem/router. I have had to replace several of these combo units in people's homes as they seem to fail without warning and then go crazy (constantly rebooting itself, etc). Not sure since the user did not say, but the 2wire units from SBC/AT&T/Embarq that I have encountered are basically modems with the router and wifi built-in, thus making it difficult to check the modem by bypassing the router

Step 1try to connect your computer directly to the modem and check if you will also experience problem
Step 2: Shutdown the computer.

Step 4: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 5: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear
Step 6: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.

if this still didnot work, maybe you need to upgrade the firmware of your router
