I have an aggravating issue that pops up once in a while. My kids computer has a wireless connection that sometimes will act up - the connection will cycle every couple of seconds connected/dis-connected/connected/dis-connected......over and over effectively keeping you from going on-line. The router is a wrt54g, with the network secured wpa2-psk (aes), with a mac filter. The card is a msi pc60g.
The funny thing is, it doesn't always do it. Usually only when you really want to get on-line.:rolleyes:

BTW: The signal strength is excellent - in the 95% or higher - when it will connect.

Do you have anything around your house that operates at ~2.4 Ghz (like a cordless phone)? Maybe you're getting interference from something.

Hmm, the phone might be, I'll have to check.

msabo said: I would try changing to channel 1 or 11 on your wireless router.
I'm on 11 right now, but I can try 1.
