    My WUSB54G gets drop from the internet sometimes and does not auto reconnect. Is there a way to fix that problem?

    I have to manually reconnect and it is a pain leaving it to download something and it just disconnects and does not reconnect

    the wusbxx are all crappy. the only thing that you can do that, i found out is the only solution is moving the thing closer to the router/ap. try updating the diriver for the wusb54g. i tell everyone that they just wasted money when they buy the wusb54g's.

    I'll have to agree with jagboy.
    I own 2 WAP 11's (Ver 1 & 2.5)
    1 WSBR45 Cable DSL Router (WAN port dead now) using
    SMC Barricade (not much better)
    1 WUSB11
    1 WUSB54G with Speed booster
    1 WAP54G (ver 2 no Speedbooster)
    I have used all combinations of these products trying to connect my wife's computer to the cable modem location at the opposite end of a one story house ~ 100 feet. Over the past two years the longest any of them have worked without tinkering is 2 weeks. I think the problem is those usb adapters. If the aren't running at near 80% signal they're just going to drop any DHCP instuctions and leases and IP stacks or whatever and disconnect. The best performance I had was with the WAP54g as the Far AP, the Newer WAP11 as a freestanding in Repeater mode and the WUSB 11 at the computer end. I only upgraded to the WUSB54G because I thought that would be mose compatible with WinXP. There are two kinds of Wireless users 1) Two story boxy type house - all satisfied users
    2) one story long type ranch house - frustrated users.
    After all this time you would think there would be a cookbook answer to these problems to be found in these forums. I can tell you there is not!
    I am going to call an electrician and have some CAT 5 run through the attic. :roll: :evil: :twisted: GOOD LUCK! CP
