    Hi all,
    when i install my WUSB54GS V2.0 it connects fine and runs ok for about an hour. It then freezes my computer up, whether im using it or is just sat idle, i then have to reboot, plug/unplug doesnt do anything. I have disabled the onboard nic, speedbooster and power saving, but still it freezes afetr an hour or so.

    Ive installed it on my laptop and it works fine (left it on over night and didnt freeze up). I am using the latest driver from the linksys website (
    I have dwnlded the driver for the adaptor minus speedbooster( and am seeing if this'll work instead.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Thanks! :)

    how do you know for sure that its the NIC that causes the problem? latest drivers arent always the best solution for every computer, you could try an older version

    I'm not sure it's the NIC, but on the Linksys website in one of the topics they say to disable the NIC. I was just stating some of the things ive tried so people dont reply "Try disabling you NIC".

    I reinstalled it last night on to my origanal CPU, and it ran fine for about 6 hours before it froze.

    My router is a Linksys WAG354G Wireless-G ADSL 2+ Modem Router Gateway. Does this have some kind of security key lease connection that refreshes every X amount of hours?
