WAP54G -- What's Up?

    I'm running a WAP54G with a WMP54G in a desktop and an old WPC11 card in an even older laptop. Everything's fine -- for a while. Then (and here's where I think I'd like to rip the WAP54G from the wall and toss it across the room) everything blows up.

    Specifically, the WAP54G seems to get really flakey -- dropping, then reestablishing connections, then dropping them again. Just can't seem to stay stably connected. I'm pretty sure it's not either the WMP54G or the WPC11, they're just sittin' there wondering -- like me -- what the idiot access point is up to.

    For what it's worth, they all have the lastest Linksys firmware and drivers, and I'm running WEP 128-bit encryption.

    I read somewhere that the WAP54G was just, well, like this, and it helped to unplug the thing every now and again for 30 minutes or so. Well, okay, I can sort of live with that, but since I was in the middle of a Windows 2000 network installation, it was really not a viable option.

    Any thoughts? Any alternatives? I'm just about to take the thing out back and shoot it.

    It should not be like that , I have multiple WAP's in my network , and don't have this problem , it looks like it's more a problem with signal ... try other channels ...

    Maybe there is an other machine transmitting on the same frequency , like a DECT phone , or a wireless TV / audio set , or even wireless doorbells orso ...

    resetting every 30 minutes is not acceptable ... at least , nor for me ...
