WRT54GS & XP Fast User Switching

    Good evening,

    I'm having trouble with my wife's laptop running XP connected via wireless (WRT54GS) to our Linux server. The server is connected to one of the routers wired ports. Logged in as myself, I started a transfer of a directory about 2.2GB. After it had transferred a few hundred MB, I switched to her account to check some problems she was having (easily fixed). When I switched back, the directory transfer had died. Tested again. Same result. I did not expect this behavior, as both XP and Linux continue to keep network ports operational for all logged in users when hard-wired and even on dial-up. Is this not the case with wireless, or am I missing something?

    Thanks,
    John
