Frequent Disconnects with WMP54G v4

    Hey all,

    I recently replaced an ancient BEFW11S4 v2 and WMP11 v1.1 with a WRT54G v3 and WMP54G v4. I've been noticing that Windows (XP Home, SP2 with WPA2 hotfix installed) will change from "Connected" to "Acquiring network address..." every so often, causing me to lose my connection for about 30 seconds. This happens at least once every hour unless I'm downloading a file or playing a game that causes constant network activity and no "idling". It does this regardless of whether I'm using WPA or WEP.

    Any ideas?

    never mind, I got it working. I kept thinking it might've been something on the router or some setting so I never checked to see if there was a new driver available for my card.. turns out there was.. it fixed my problem.
