I recently purchased this adaptor for use on my Systemax 2.5GHZ desktop running XP Pro. This machine used to be rock solid but starting at or near the time I installed the adaptor, I began to noticed that the machine would freeze tight as a drum every so often.I don't know whether it matters, but my router is a Linksys WRT54GS. Sometimes, the PC will run for as long as 12 hours or more, other times, only a few hours before it locks up. The only thing that is consistent is that if left on long enough, it's not a matter of it but only when it will happen.
I'm not 100% sure that my freezing issues are due to this adaptor, but if not then it's one heck of a coincidence. I used to run this machine with an orinoco gold 802.11b pcmcia card in a PCI adaptor and could leave it on for days at a time. Unfortunately, I no longer have that adaptor and the machine isn't in the same room as my router, so testing with a hardwire connection would be a logistical nightmare. In an attempt to troubleshoot this issue among other things, I recently did a clean install of XP, but the problem persisted.
Has anyone seen this and if so, is there a solution?
