Problem with Asus WL-138G Network card and Windows 2000

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Code Developer, May 11, 2005.

  1. I've recently installed an Asus WL-138G wireless network card (PCI) into a
    PC running Windows 2000. The OS has all the latest service packs and patches
    installed. The network card has all the latest drivers downloaded from Asus.
    The network is structured using a belkin router to a 1Mb cable internet
    connection.

    The problem I've got is that when the PC has been up and running with a user
    logged in for around 1/2 an hour, the network connection sometimes drops
    out. The network tray icon shows 'cable unplugged' and using the Asus
    control centre to search for the wireless network fails (can't detect any
    network). I have to reset the PC in order for the Asus control centre to
    re-connect automatically to the wireless network. I know the network is fine
    as resetting the PC cures the problem, and another laptop connected via a
    Belkin PCMCIA wireless card never has any such issues.

    Anyone had any similar problems with the Asus PCI card? Does Asus have a
    knowledge base / forum in which to find out about known issues?

    Thanks,
    Shaun.
