Deactivated WZC, but now how do I get the network connected?

    This is a continuation of a thread I have going over at DD-WRT. I'm experiencing the same problems running filesharing software (Azureus) over my wireless network (WRT54G V1 or 2 not sure, to a wmp54g V3) that a lot of other people here have experienced, regular 'brown outs' in the network where it stays connected, but no data passes.

    I've decided to try deactivating WZC, which is easy enough, but I can't get the Lynksis configuration software to kick in again so I can get my card configured for my network. I've tried removing and replacing the drivers with the software the card came with, but Windows won't let me install them. If I run the Setup.exe it just dies silently, and if I go through control panel it just tells me I have a newer version already installed.

    Any ideas?

    Try manually placing the drivers in the correct folder which is probably C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers. Manually meaning, drag and drop or cut/copy and paste the drivers. As far as WZC goes, I'm not too familiar with what issues you're having. I don't use Azureus, but I have used BTLite and WinMX without issues. I do know that WZC is recommended over the linksys utility if you have XP SP2. Sometimes, disabling and re-enabling WZC is enough to do the trick. If you know what NetStumbler is, a quick start and stop of that little program will stop and restart WCZ and usually straightens out my connection if I'm having minor issues. This way, NetStumbler takes over the connection briefly and I don't loose all connectivity as you would by disabling WZC and then re-enabling it.
