Question about Xterasys XN-2523G 802.11g/b (xn2523g) Wireless Adapter

This wireless adapter connects, and then after about 3 minutes disconnects

I really do not know what has happened to this adapter that has worked perfectly until today. Every time I start up my computer, it connects as usual, but just when I am checking my email, it disconnects. Then I try and enable it again, it seems to work and then it just disconnects me again after about 2 or 3 minutes. I have tried restarting my computer, the wireless router, and the cable modem about 2 times now, but to no avail. I have comcast high speed internet and am now unable to connect for more than 3 minutes...it's driving me crazy!! I also have tried repairing the network, which works as I have said for 3 minutes, then I begin to lose packets and it disconnects me, again. I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me in any way possible at [email protected] . Thank you, Deniz

I had the same problem - solution was to disable the Windows "Wireless Zero Configuration". Go to Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, then Services, scroll down to "Wireless Zero Configuration", right click and select Stop. This should allow the manufacturers driver to take over. The Windows driver interferes with it.

This fixed exactly this problem for me, hope it is useful to someone out there.

AWESOME! This fixed the problem COMPLETELY!!! Thankyou SOOO much

Try changing the channel on the adapter, in the device manager. It can be 1 through 11. Wireless b and g operate on 2.4ghz. There could be something nearby creating a conflict on that spectrum. Alot of cordless phones use 2.4ghz now. I have 2.4ghz phones in my house and had issues everytime a phone was picked up the wireless network connection went down. I changed the channel until I found one with no interference.

Yes, this is a widespread problem. You should return it as soon as possible (if you still can) and sign a petition here (http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/take-the-netgear-wg311v3-off-of-bestbuys-shelves) Don't even bother with their customer service it is the worst I have ever dealt with. I would recommend a D-link if you want to be in the $40-50 price range.

You also should have filters installed on every phone in your home to help solve the interference problem.

I use the same wireless for my GPS unit and it does the same thing..Changing the channel doesn't always fix the problem either..What I have found out is after the card gets around 3mg of information threw it, it just shutdowns..The easy soultion is just to use the wire or get something diff. but after all thats not what you got it for.

You can also add a USB extention cable to the computer and then to the wireless adapter. Then move the adapter on the cable away from the computer. This worked for me. Here is some info on a bug in that device and a link to download an update to fix it :: The D-Link DWL-G132 wireless adapter (USB) ships with a version of A5AGU.SYS that is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow. This overflow can lead to arbitrary kernel-mode code execution. The overflow occurs when a 802.11 beacon request is received that contains over 36 bytes in the Rates information element (IE). Bla bla bla....... Use this link to download the latest drivers and software update for that model :: http://support.dlink.com/products/view.asp?productid=WUA-2340

Could be either problem, although at first blush, I'd say a channel conflict, as noted by CCNA Tech. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

It sounds like the wire from your house to the isp switch is faulty you should probably call them down to fix. Or it could just be the modem are you using the same modem for both computers? If so then that's probably the problem.

Help me with IBM A21M Wireless problem.


Make sure that there are NO electrical devices between you and the wireless router. Some electrical devices will mess your signal up.
(cordless phones are known to mess with them) too.
Microwaves interfere with the signal from your router. Interference means a low quality signal.
The following steps help you troubleshoot a bad wireless connection. Stop following the steps when the connection problem is solved:
1. Refresh the wireless connection that is giving you trouble.
2. Temporarily disable the firewall or Internet security software on the computer that is having connection troubles.
3. Open the wireless connection manager and make sure that the SSID is correct. Also make sure that encryption settings and keys match the settings in your WAP (Wireless Access Point).
4. Restart DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) on your WAP; if necessary reboot the WAP.
5. If the troublesome Wi-Fi adapter is removable - such as a USB, cardbus, or Ethernet bridge adapter - remove or disconnect it and disconnect any power cords. Then reconnect the device.
6. Right-click the My Computer icon in the Windows Start menu and choose Properties.
7. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button (see Figure 1).
8. In the Device Manager window, click the plus-sign next to Network Adapters (see Figure 2).
If you see a yellow exclamation mark next to the name of the adapter, something is wrong. Right-click it and choose Uninstall, restart Windows, and then re-install the driver software as described in the manufacturer's instructions.
