Linksys Wireless network problem

By jtoscano ·

I have just installed a Linksys Wireless-B 4-port access point/router with the additional Linksys signal booster accessory attached. I am using DHCP. I have given my router an explicit SSID name and I am using channel 11.

Each of my 2 Windows XP pro PC's have a Linksys WMP11 v2.7 Wireless PCI lan adapter installed.
The PC's communicate fine with the access point, but following a brief period will loose communication and the "more then one network is available" baloon appears in the system tray. There are then 3 available networks available to attach to. Is there a possibilty that others in my neighborhood are using the same product? I have tried using several different channel combinations.

At this point I am forced to enter the WEP keys again and sign back in, tedious to say the least.

I am using WEP (128 encryption) with SSID enabled. I have tried disabling WEP and SSID which seems to imporve my situation until I reboot my PC's at which time I am unable to connect at all. I even have tried using static IP's with no help.

The PC's and access point are all on the same channel.
I have contacted Linksys tech support and they are useless.

Can anybody out there help??

This is not causing by your Linksys product.
It is something to do with Window XP. Select your connection properties, under wireless 'network' tab, uncheck the 'use window to configure wireless network'.

Then restart your machine.

Re-configure using your WAN monitor configuration.
