Default D-Link connection problem

I'm hoping someone out there has a solution for a wireless connection
problem.

Three weeks ago I purchased a D-Link bundled system, with a DI-524 H/W
ver E1 F/W v5.10 router and a DWL G122 ver B1 F/W 2.02 adapter. I'm
using the adapter on a Dell Dimension 8200 desktop running XP for home.
All software and firmware has been upgraded. I have the adapter
approximately 12 feet from the router and the connection strength is
usually at the maximum.

Approximately every 3 minutes the connection gets lost. I usually
realize this when a window pops up telling me the network is now
connected. Occasionally I have to manually open up the icon and
re-enter my password. Telecommuting is impossible with this problem.

I've talked to D-Link technical support three times by phone and
twice via e-mail. They've basically told me to do the same things
over and over (use Windows to configure the adapter, don't use
Windows to configure the adapter, change the channel, change the RTS
threshold and fragmentation rates, move the location of the adapter,
etc). The problem is still there.

This seems to be outside of D-Link's ability to fix. Does anyone
have any experience with disconnects like this? Are there any obscure
fixes I can try? How would I check to see if there is outside RF
interference?

TIA.

Default Re: D-Link connection problem

This is a follow-up to my own note. Since writing it I've found out
that the admin account on my machine does not have the disconnect
problems; it has stayed connected for over an hour now without a
problem. The limit account I had been using for e-mail and browsing
was disconnecting at 1-5 minute intervals, and another limited account
I want to use strictly for logons to work will not connect at all.

There's something about the way the adapter is set up that is
incompatable with limited access XP ids. Does anyone know a way around
this? I'd rather use the limited accounts for i-net access for
protection.

Thanks.

It does sound like radio interference. See the Interference section in
the wiki below.

Previously I have had a not dissimilar problem also with a Dell and a USB
WiFi adaptor. Eventually the problem was traced to be the USB chipset on the
Dell. It was a VIA type which we managed to sort out by upgrading the USB
chipset drivers. Have you got the latest chipset drivers installed for the
Dell?

I'm assuming you are using WPA. It sounds like its not getting the WPA
update.

Are you using Microsoft's or D-Link's WPA supplicant?

I haven't seen the same problem under Windoze, but have seen it under it
GNU/Linux.
(It turned out to be a permission problem, which I was able to resolve.)

Can't say for sure if thats what is going on, but this may give you some
keywords to google/deja for...
