Weird Problem

    Hi all,
    I’m using my wireless network in my home here and I seem to have a very weird problem. This doesn’t happen very often but when it does it ****es me off.

    Ok here’s the problem, sometimes when I’m using the internet it drops out and reconnects instantaneously (May or may not show the message in the bubble saying wireless connection dropped) and my msn still works plus the site I was on but if I open a new tab in FireFox or try to do anything that needs an internet connection it doesn’t work :/ .This also happens if I’m downloading something or using the net and doesn’t actually "disconnect" or anything.

    Very weird and any help would be appreciated. :D

    -WRT54G Linksys AP with Satori firmware at 50mw output.
    -MSI CB54G wireless Cardbus Adapter
    -Using channel 11 and updated drivers for the cardbus adapter which fixed a problem that caused the signal to be dropped every so often like every 10 min or so, now it only happens every 2-3 hours.
    -Also used the guide in the FAQ to fix a weak signal which also helped a bit :D

    If you have multiple logons on your wireless PC, you might want to consider the following registry change which worked well for me:

    "AuthMode"=dword:00000002 :lol:

    I just had the problem happen to me when I was wired to the AP aswell :/ the internet still continues to work (IRC bittorent etc) plus the site I was on at the moment. But when I try to access another site or use another program that uses the internet it gets stuck on "resolving host" for like 2 sec and then gives an error and doesnt work.
