I'm hoping someone out there has a solution for a wireless connection problem.
Three weeks ago I purchased a D-Link bundled system, with a DI-524 H/W ver E1 F/W v5.10 router and a DWL G122 ver B1 F/W 2.02 adapter. I'm using the adapter on a Dell Dimension 8200 desktop running XP for home. All software and firmware has been upgraded. I have the adapter approximately 12 feet from the router and the connection strength is usually at the maximum.
Approximately every 3 minutes the connection gets lost. I usually realize this when a window pops up telling me the network is now connected. Occasionally I have to manually open up the icon and re-enter my password. Telecommuting is impossible with this problem.
I've talked to D-Link technical support three times by phone and twice via e-mail. They've basically told me to do the same things over and over (use Windows to configure the adapter, don't use Windows to configure the adapter, change the channel, change the RTS threshold and fragmentation rates, move the location of the adapter, etc). The problem is still there.
This seems to be outside of D-Link's ability to fix. Does anyone have any experience with disconnects like this? Are there any obscure fixes I can try? How would I check to see if there is outside RF interference?
