I bought a Buffalo router few days ago. The wired feature works fine, but the wireless isn’t. The connection keeps dropping every 10 min or so for few sec then back online again .The laptop is only 15 ft from the router, no wireless phone around. No update available for the router at this time. I emailed tech support no answer yet

The router is hard wired to my pc
XP home
Duron 1600,256mb,80gb
Sp-1

Laptop DELL 8100
XP pro
Sp-1
Dell true mobile 1150.up to date (worked fine with my old router)

A couple of likely causes:
(1) You have Wireless Zero Configuration enabled on the laptop and are running XP Home with less than SP2. Wireless Zero Configuration has bugs that can cause this behavior. If this is the case, get SP2.
(2) You have Wireless Zero Configuration enabled and also installed the software that comes with your wireless adapter on the laptop. Wireless Zero Configuration and 3rd party connection software do not play nice if running together. If this is the case, disable one or the other. I recommend disabling Wireless Zero Configuration and keep the 3rd party software.

XP pro on the laptop....How come I didn’t have this issue with my old wireless router (Netgear 814v2)?

Wireless Zero Configuration only?
Buffalo software only?
Both?

I recommend disabling Wireless Zero Configuration and let the Buffalo software handle the connection.
Go to Start->Settings->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services.
Double-click on Wireless Zero Configuration.
Change the Startup type to Manual (so that the service will not be started when the computer is rebooted) and click on the Stop button to stop the service.
Click on OK to complete the process.

If that doesn't work, re-enable Wireless Zero (set it to "automatic", disable the Buffalo software, and re-logon).

I did try the 1st option. Same problem

2ed option.I removed the client manger and enabled the WZC+ I also removed Windows XP Hotfix (SP2) Q815485. I will check it in the morning and see if that works.
Thanks for the help

WZC + removing Windows XP Hotfix (SP2) Q815485 did the trick.thanx for the help.

One more thing I noticed .The router and ZoneAlarm are no more friends anymore :D SPI is off any ideas?
