Problem with Asus WL-138G Network card and Windows 2000

I've recently installed an Asus WL-138G wireless network card (PCI) into a
PC running Windows 2000. The OS has all the latest service packs and patches
installed. The network card has all the latest drivers downloaded from Asus.
The network is structured using a belkin router to a 1Mb cable internet
connection.

The problem I've got is that when the PC has been up and running with a user
logged in for around 1/2 an hour, the network connection sometimes drops
out. The network tray icon shows 'cable unplugged' and using the Asus
control centre to search for the wireless network fails (can't detect any
network). I have to reset the PC in order for the Asus control centre to
re-connect automatically to the wireless network. I know the network is fine
as resetting the PC cures the problem, and another laptop connected via a
Belkin PCMCIA wireless card never has any such issues.

Anyone had any similar problems with the Asus PCI card? Does Asus have a
knowledge base / forum in which to find out about known issues?

Thanks,
Shaun.

I expect you have failed to untick "turn off this device to save power"
