To make a long story short... Tried changing some settings (as per Linksys tech support) on both the Wiflyer router and the WUSB11 but it still has to be power cycled to get it back online. Turned off all power savings settings on the PC including in the Bios. Tried with and without a powered USB hub. The other PC's on the network are OK. I had to use regedit to get to the settings because Win98se does not have "network connection" in the control panel and the "network" applet in control panel has very few options for the adaptor. Anyone know the magic solution, besides buying a different adaptor?
