Hi. I just wrote a lengthy post and for some reason it didn't post.. so now i just wasted 20 minutes writing and i really don't want to redo that.. i'll be quick.. D-link 108g MIMO wireless ALLNET 0263p USB2.0 adapter guest-comp has WinXP SP2 network strength showing on my guest-comp is 65-85% windows incorporated software for wireless says "not set up to connect to access-point" when i try to connect to my network. But in the "preffered networks" -> "advanced" then it's set to "any" and if i try to change anything about the wireless network settings then it says that it can't be saved. the software for my adapter is a HW .32 config utility it has a range of tabs where you can see: networks available, profile, about, general etc. only 3 of the ones that should be there are visible before it detects a network, which it won't. Except when i reboot the comp and replug the the adapter, then it can find it once per program execution (if i exit the software i can't detect the network anymore). anyway, when i do detect it i can log on and type in my encryption key fine (WEP, shared. Didn't want to connect when i used WPA-PSK for some reason) BUT it disconnects after 30-60 seconds, and i then have to reconnect manually and it disconnects again. help!
