Wireless Zero Config. keeps turning off

By EStreetJerseyGirl ·
Hi! I have a wireless Internet connection, and I don't have any problems with it when the Wireless Zero Configuration is set to Automatic and Started, but for some reason, it occasionally disables itself and stops. I'm not making any changes to the router or to the card. Any ideas as to why this is happening, and how to fix it? Thanx!

It's a LinkSys WMP11 wireless card, and a LinkSys BEFW11P1 router. WEP is shut off; it was having sonnection issues with it turned on, kept giving the PC with the wireless card the boot every few hours. The Network Type is Infrastructure, and my blood type is B+. :-)

B+ as opposed to A-??? How much does Red Cross pay you when you donate???

try looking for a firmware update for your linksys wireless router on their website. Might be a firmware bug that's been fixed. Read the "Read Me" .txt file to see if there was a bug and the new firmware will fix it.

Thanx - I downloaded the updated firmware from the LinkSys FTP site ( ... for some unknown reason, LinkSys, geniuses that they are, don't have the most recent firmware on their website, so you have to go to an FTP site that requires research to actually find. What a pain in the *** LinkSys is ... even their tech support doesn't know what the **** they're talking about. Outsourcing sucks, and not in a good way.

Anywho, thanx for the tip; though I didn't get anything from the website, I was able to find the firmware I needed! :-)

According to linksys they dont recommend you use their configuration utility if you have windows xp. So if you do have windows xp and you are using the their configuration that might be your problem. I would remove the linksys configuration utility and just use windows configuration utility. Test it out. And if you keep having the same problem then your wireless configurator that comes with XP is damaged(had the same problem) I disabled it and just use the one for linksys then. If that doesn't solve you may have to upgrade the firmware.

If you look at the website for the adapter it will have the proper installation procedure for this card.
