When I use the Linksys driver is correlation with Windows SP2 I can't
connect.

I have to turn on the Zero Wireless Configuration Service in Windows
SP2 manually.
I then have to turn of Zero Wireless Configuration service again else
the connection dies after some minues and it is really dificult to get
it up and running again.

I have turned of the Cisco Wireless Monitor.

I tried to communicate with Linksys support in Singapore but did not
get any good answer/solution to my problem.

With regards to Zero Config, from your description of the "workaround" to
your intermittent connectivity (..."the connection dies after some
minutes..."), i.e. you manually stop the Zero Config service, it sounds like
you may have 802.1x authentication enabled for your network when in fact it
is not using 802.1x authentication. If this is in fact the case, simply
disabling 802.1x for that network configuration should allow you to properly
connect and stay connected without having to manually disable the service.

Hi Peter

Thank you for trying to help me out.

I just checked. IEEE 802.1x authentication has been turned off all the time.
