    Hi. Well, as the subject really.
    A friend of mine has a a Belkin wireless router for his ADSL connection. He
    also bought a Belkin notebook wireless pcmcia card.
    Everything installs perfectly and the connection is great for a couple of
    days. Then it drops and wont reconnect. I keep popping round and try
    everything, but end up re-installing it. It again then works for a few days,
    then gone, again.
    Any ideas on how to keep the blinkin thing connected.

    Many thanks

    Darren

    Hi, thanks Linker3000. Do you know, after reading your reply, i have a
    feeling that the card is infact Sitecom. What exactly is the problem
    regarding them and winxp.

    thanks again for you great suggestions
