Question about Intel 2915ABG 802.11a, 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
I use the Intel 2915ABG with 18.104.22.168 driver and i get intempestive disconnections. Acces Points are Cisco AP1231G and also ARUBA AP60 and AP65. General settings are : Power transmission = Maximum Power savings = NO (maximum) It seems that disconnections happens when roaming. Radio coverage is excellent, I can see 4 APs from the same location, each AP on a different and non adjacent channel. I have set the CAM or PSP acces point parameter to NO (not used) but I still have disconnections. Thank you for helping resolving this problem. I use Windows XP Embedded with a 800MHz Celeron processor.
Intermittent disconnection issues on a radio/wireless network will generally be caused by interferance (speakers, power board fully loaded, High wattage Lamp (flourescent bulbs usually) all parked too close to the wireless router, access point or network card. or possibly due to interuption of the active signal possibly because the distance of the router and network card/access point is just on the edge of the best signal limit and disruption occurs when someone or something gets up and moves itself inbetween the two service points)I resolved my disconnection issues by purchasing a wireless Kite for the access point and router, which will intensify the radio signal and bring the access points within closer range of each other, friends of mine have resolved intermittent signal issues by making a thin tube of rolled tinfoil about 30cm long slipped over each aerial affected by the intermittent signal disconnection. Also verify the "line of sight and non line of sight" signal distance limits for your radio equipment as the signal distance will decrease depending on the age of your wireless equipment, most equipment is in the 30Ft non line of sight- 100Ft line of sight arena out of the box but you can expect to half this figure after 3 - 5 years of continued use. Basically three options Interferance, Interupption or age only distance testing will verify this accurately IE: bring the router and access point withing 1Ft of each other and start walking away still holding the access point, whilst a user monitors the radio network condition.
