    I have a Linksys WMP54G Wireless PCI card installed on my computer, and am having problems using it inside Windows Vista. I was able to install it using the Vista driver from the Linksys website. I can surf the internet, play games online, and pretty much do anything except download. Whenever I try to download a file whether it's a torrent, http, or even from Windows Update, it will randomly disconnect from my router and wont connect again until I reset the router. It also won't let me connect to the default gateway (

    This card works perfect in XP, and my laptop (uses a different card) which runs Vista, also works perfect. I tried contacting Linksys, but they have the worst support and wouldn't cooperate, however they did say it was my router causing the problem. BTW my router is an Actiontec GT701-wg, using NOD32 firewall, and I am letting vista automatically configure my Static IP (since it doesn't work at all, when i try and configure it).
