    I am having this very frustrating problem with my wireless network.

    Router: WRT54G w/ HyperWRT 1.3 firware

    Machine 1: Windows XP SP2 with Cisco 350 Mini PCI card (802.11b)
    Machine 2: Windows XP Home (SP1) w/ Netgear MA401 (802.11b)

    1. This problem just started happening.
    2. I have tried using many different firmwares.
    3. I even went and got another WRT54G and still am having the problem.
    4. All the adapters have the most up to date drivers.
    5. The Wireless Zero serivce is disabled on both machines.
    6. I have tried using Windows to manage my adapters as well as the client utilites that come with the adapters.
    7. Not using 802.1x authentication.

    I used Netstumbler to scan the area. I see two networks, one is mine and the other is the guy's next door. I am on channel one and he is on channel 11.

    Netstumbler Statistics:
    Signal: -46
    Noise: -100 (I assume this means no noise)
    SNR: 54
    Beacon: 50

    Like I said, this just started happening.

    I will try to take my AP and laptop to another location and see if the problem exists still. But until then...any ideas?

    Some other statistics:

    SSID Mismatches: 90
    PLCP CRC Errors: 51,500
    MAC CRC Errors: 227

    Anyone know what those mean?

    See the subject line...I am getting hit with a ton of interference and it is causing my adapter cards to drop thier connection every 10 - 20 seconds.

    We don't have any of those devices, but any one of the neighbors could. I have tried using WZC as well as the client utilities.
