Hi, I am using a WAP54G, firmware 2.07, in repeater mode of a WRT54G. I am accesing the WAP54G via an IBM Thinkpad T40 (miniPCI cisco card, and Aironet Client Utility from Cisco, V 6.2.012)
This combination works nice, I have good signal from the WAP54G, however there are "mini-cuts" to the connectivity, of no more than let's say one second. That's enough for my machine to show a 'network down' message, that automatically turns into 'network up', however for certain applications I use that 'down-1-second-later-up' thing is enough for cancelling them (for instance if I use streaming of any kind, like the popular skype VoIP application). This situations happens in average once every 10 minutes.
Something else: If I choose to connect directly from the T40 to the WRT54G ( in the exact physical location the WAP54G lies ), that does not happen, so I am pretty sure this is related with the connectivity between either my T40 and the WAP54G, or the connectivity between the WAP54G and the WRT54G.
Maybe this could be resolved seting up some timeout parameter somewhere. Using the web based utility of both the WTR54G and of the WRT54G I do not see any parameter to adjust .... Other possibility. May be I have to place the WAP54G much closer to the WRT54G to avoid this behaviour .... May be because the WRT54G and the WAP54G are connected to 54Mbts/sec and that is a much more sensitive connection ...
Any help will be appreciatted.
