    Hi all,

    If you want to improve the WIFI connection stability once connected use the following command: net stop WZCSVC on your laptop or desktop with windows XP.
    To get back to the initial state use: net start WZCSVC

    Before I used this commands I could not transfer 10 MB of data over the WIFI without disconnection.Now I can't see disconnection even during 4 GB transferts.

    This is due to the fact that Windows keeps scanning for better WIFI connections all the time even when it found one and connected to it.

    You can put these commands in two icons that you create on your desktop so you have just to click on them.

    Try this and let me know if this worked fine for you as well.

    Well I don't know how old this is for you but for me it's new and it helped me.

    Do you know if this helped other people as well? Why are so many guys coplaining about the WIFI?

    The WAG WIFI reliability, (not the fault of the WAG but of Windows)

    I use Windows 2000 on one of my computers. Will that command work on it as well?

    Never mind arguing about who invented it first - does it work?????

    I'm about to shell out £100 for a new box, because the WAG hunk of junk won't maintain a stable signal, and if this little trick does the trick, then I won't bother - has this worked for many people??

    Worked for me for a while, then back to its old failing ways.

    Nothing really to do with the client end as I ran for while with the WAG54G as a modem to a WRT54GS acting as the wireless router and saw not one wireless problem at all. Put WAG54G back and wireless connectivity goes down the pan.

    Got my money back one the WAG54G's and replaced them all with Netgear DG834G's which just work out of the box without any fiddling.

    Unfortunately, Linksys is less professional than Netgear...

    Which is why I chose Linksys in the first place, but I wanted a working reliable ADSL router, which Linksys in my experience cannot do.

    Got 6 DG834G's on various sites and not heard anything from customers as unlike Linksys WAG54G's these just work and keep on working.
