    Hi, I have just purchased a WAG325n and a WPC300n, I have upgraded to the lastest firmware and drivers etc. I have a destop, network printer, and netword hd attached wired. This appears fine. (pretty much default router settings except addresses are changed from 192.168.1.* to 192.0.0.* ) Problem comes withe wireless to my dell laptop. With both the centrino intel pro card and the WPC300n I get excellent wirless connection. In both cases, in order to use wpa2 I have had to use the microsoft utility and disable the intel pro utility and the Lynksys utility else I cannot connect. This is ok but I suddenly lose network connection - wirless connection is fine (I cannot connect to the Linksys web interface nor the rest of the network). I have to repair the network connection and may have to do this a couple of times before I reconnect. I have tried to give a fixed network address to the card but this does not help. This is a real pain so any ideas would be greatfully received!

    Thanks

    Mark

    Hi,

    WPC300N uses a Broadcom chip so if you have Vista you probably have advantage to use the last 4.102.28.4 version from : here !

    Unfortunately my laptop runs xp :-(

    In this case, 4.100.15.5 from Broadcom is the best...

    ah... I also realise that I have a v2 card with an Atheros chip ....... Is it likely that it is a card driver problem as I have the same issues with the intel "centrino" card. I would have thought it was more likely a router issue. It that right?

    Mark...

    One would usually deduce that if you don't have to reboot the router, that it is not the problem. All you are doing with a repair is restarting the wifi card's driver, and getting an ip, so I would assume that it is a card driver problem.

    In this case, you have probably a better driver here !
