I have 2 D-Link wireless PCI adapters - DWL-G520 (using D-Link utility)
running on a w2k and xp machine.

The connection works from the OS log on screen. When I log on to either
machine, the desktop appears and then the wireless connection is dropped.
I am required to rescan every time I log back on.

My laptop connects with a DWL G650, using Windows to manage the connection.
No problems.


Setup

D-Link (DI-624) broadband wireless 'G' router.
Infrastructure WEP open system 64 bit encryption.
Mode is G with or without turbo.
Both machines use D-Links config utility to manage connection.

Using the proprietary config utility, disable Wireless Zero
Configuration. Also, broadcast SSID - this is often the solution to
squirrely wireless connections.

Thanks for your help with this. I have been broadcasting SSID. In both the
D-Link router and PCI wireless config utilities, there is no reference to
zero config (though I remember it from my Linksys setup prior).

Can you tell me where this setting is found?

The Wireless Zero Configuration service can be found from All
Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Administrative Services/Services or
