I hve a New eMachines T5206 running on Windows Xp Pro. 512 ram, 3.06 Pentium 4 with Hyper Threading. I put a Linksys wireless PCI Adapter Carrd Model WMP54G card into the back slot of my pc, and connected it to my Dlink wireless broadband router. It connected fine, but after 4 to 5 minutes, it disconnected. then reconnected. it was connected at 54mbps and cnnectes to that afterwards. Ive contacted both linksys and Dlink support, as well as circuit city. nd none of them can spot the problem. its not compatiblity issues because it is supposed to work fine, The networks set up correctly. the router has been set up correclty. no security or firewalls blocking the connection, yet still it disconnects. any ideas?

i can give any more info that might be needed.

Just go into the device manager. Under your specific network card, click on the Power Management tab. It's not all that common but it can happen.

Also, since it is a wireless card, is there any difference if you move closer to the router.

its only about 20 feet from the router, tops the outers in the next room.

and i checked and its on Cam constantly awake mode, and thats the one it should be on because the other 2 are power saving modes.

Can you swap with any of the other computer's network cards to see if that's where the problem is.

no other computers have a network card like this. i went today and replaced the card after having the same problem, it still isnt fixed. i have 3 other laptops, but all have built in wireless cards, and then i have this desktop (one with the problems,) my HP (thats ethernet hardwired) and then i have another computer, but its ethernet hardwired too. so...... cant replace the card.
