Wireless & XP

By jredding ·
I am having an issue setting up a wireless network. I have set up wireless repeater to extend to 2 distant machines. The furthest machine, running 98, is OK but the closer machine running XP, seems to be dropping the wireless connection. It will actually remove it from 'available wireless connections'. Is there possibly a setting in XP that is helping to cause this? I plan to try re-installing the wireless PCI cards driver.

sure, on the card, is it set (device manage - device in question) to power off device if not used? if so, disable that "feature"

In your XP machine right clink on my network places. When your connection come check to see if your wireless connection is being bridged with something else. If it is try removing the bridge that may take care of your problem.

I resolved this issue 2 nights ago but this is what the problem was. The system was automatically bridging the wireless card to the Ethernet NIC. I had disabled the bridge but once I re-setup the wireless card it automatically enabled the bridge again! Once the wireless card was setup I could click on the wireless connection and click 'remove from bridge'.
