    Hi all,

    Is there a way to let Windows deal with my connection instead of Netgear.
    I think I read something about having Windows look after it was better.
    At the moment I have both icons in the system tray.
    I'm wondering if this could be causing some conflict as my connection drops off alot?

    Windows XP SP2
    Netgear WG111v2 Adaptor
    Belkin54g Router

    Thanks.

    Well, both of them running is most CERTAINLY a problem, and will cause continuous disconnections, sound familiar? :)

    I'd start by simply exiting the Netgear wireless client and searching for wireless networks with WZC and see how well it works. If that works well, you can simply remove the automatic startup of the Netgear client. If WZC is a problem, you can disable it in the Windows Services and just use the Netgear client.
