    I am using a Netgear MA101 USB adaptor to connect to my 11b network. It works fine save for a couple strange quirks. If I check task manager after boot-up, the wlanmonitor.exe is using 3-4 mb of memory. If I leave the PC running for several days, the memory usage grows. I checked task manager the other day and found that the wlanmonitor app was hogging nearly 50 mb's of memory. Once I re-boot, it goes back to the 3-4 mb's but will start to consume more the longer the PC remains running. Why does it do this? Is there a cache somewhere that can be flushed out?

    I am running Win XP SP1 with all current downloads and patches installed on a Dell T700r, 384mb/80gb.
