Zoom Wireless-G USB 4110 Disconnects from BT Home Wireless Hub

Q: Zoom Wireless-G USB 4110 Disconnects from BT Home Wireless Hub


I need some help stopping the disconnecting. Its very anoying.

As the title states, my PC is disconnecting from the BT Home Wireless Hub.
It doesn't do this all the time and from what I can gather it only disconnects when downloading/uploading some amounts of data. Specifically Playing MMO's (EVE-Online, Tibia, Star Sonata, WoW) and Downloads.

Network Adapter Zoom Wireless-G USB adapter (

I have the latest drivers for this device and the hub is working fine.
The usb adapter is on a 3M Belkin USB Extension cable.
The Hub is on the other side of the house and on the second floor.

The understanding I have is that it disconnects due to low signal strength, but I have a strength of 30-40% most of the time, lowest being 10%. Link Quality always sits between 40%-100%.

Example: When I load EVE-Online Client, the client gets the status of the server cluster (online + number of players or offline, etc) This is when it starts to disconnect.

The connection just drops no matter what the link quality or signal strength. This happens constantly every 2 minutes.
Tedious solution for the random disconnection: when the ZoneAlarm Icon (my firewall) stops showing the data traffic of the connection, click Apply on the Zoom Wireless-G application. It looks like this refreshes the connection.

Parts of the setup for my PC that I cannot change.
Location of the PC and BT Home Hub (Hub is directly connected into the business computer and laptop dock, PC is in my room)
Having the usb adapter connected directly into the computer (i cannot get a signal to the hub on any port due to the amount of objects between them)
My PC Specs:

Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Professional
OS Service Pack Service Pack 2
DirectX (DirectX 9.0c)

CPU Type Intel Pentium 4, 2666 MHz (20 x 133)

I have a wireless internet with WEP security. I connect to the network (wirelessly), but it losses connection...sometimes 5 min, sometimes 15 minutes.
Now, I know it's not my laptop because I can connect to other wireless networks and stay connected. I've tried unplugging the router and modem, but still the same thing. I have full signal strength, so that is not it.
Does anyone have any ideas ?

Hi, I've got a wifi router Edimax BR-6204Wg that is serving several computers in my home. All of them run Linux. The network is WPA-protected, only registered MAC addresses can connect.

All is well until I boot to Windows on ANY computer I've tried (both Dell Latitude). What happens next is that Windows connects to the network, disconnects after a while and all the other computers disconnect from the network as well. The Windows laptop then connects again and as long as there is no other connected computer on the network, stays connected.

I am a rather advanced user but cannot read Ethereal dumps, so I wonder if anyone has had a similar problem? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Mine is Dell Inspiron 3537, Os: Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My laptop wifi works fine for some period of time, but suddenly the current wireless connection gets disconnected and no wireless networks appear in the list. The network connection icon in taskbar changes to no network connection (small monitor with yellow exclamation icon). The wireless adapter is still enabled only.
Well i found a way to bring back the connection and to show the available wireless networks by disabling and enabling the dell wireless adapter under "change adapter settings" in Network and sharing center. But this problem keeps repeating at unpredictable intervals and i have to disable and enable the wireless adapter everytime!. Please help me with a solution.
I have already tried the following,
1. Re-installing,updating wireless network drivers.
2. Re-installing entire OS with full format of all hard drives.
3. Disabled (unchecked) "allow computer to turn off this device to save power" option under power management tab of dell wireless adapter properties.
4. Changed the power saving options for wireless adapter to "maximise perfomance" for both on battery and plugged in modes.
Having tried all these still no luck, the problem persists. I borrowed a digisol wireless USB adapter from my friend. this works fine all the time with no issues.
I have no idea why mine is not working properly. please do help.

Hi guys. My wireless connection woes are never far away .

OK, so I have a wireless connection that has been working fine for almost a year.

Yesterday, I restart my computer, and the connection is connecting...disconnecting...connecting...disconnecting...as so on!

This is only when I am actually browsing the Internet. It never disconnects when the connection is idle.

I have tried changing channels, and I don't think it can be interference, because no matter how close to the WAP I am, the connection keeps connecting and disconnecting.

Also, I tried connecting my WAP directly to my laptop and even the LAN connection kept disconnecting and reconnecting in the same manner! I even tried connecting the WAP to another PC and still, the same dis-reconnecting difficulty.

What to do? Is the WAP faulty? I notice on the WAP the RX/TX light is on and the Link light is on, then (when it disconnects) one light goes off, the other stays on, then the other goes on and the first one goes off, and this goes on and on and then they both stay on. After 10 seconds the pattern repeats itself...

What on earth is going on?

By the way, my WAP is connected to a router which is connected to my cable modem. The wired connection to the router works perfectly, but when the WAP is involved this happens (dis-reconnecting) as I said, even when PC/laptop is hard wired into the WAP.



It was working fine for a year, and then this?

I appreciate any help in advance (as usual ).... Read more

I'm running a Toshiba 1905-S301 laptop (2 gig speed, 1 gig mem, 300 gig hd) with Windows 7 (32 bit) I thought I'd try the Zoom 4411 wireless-n USB adapter. It works great and I have the advertised transfer speed (54) for using on a USB 1.1 port.

My problem happens when I shut down Windows when the adapter is plugged in. A few seconds after the normal shutdown sequence begins I get a blue screen showing a system minidump. It never goes into shutdown, but instead reboots and brings up Windows 7 again with the failure noted as an unexpected shutdown sequence. If I pull the adapter and then go for a shutdown the process takes longer than usual (over a minute vice 15 seconds), but it eventually completes the shutdown and doesn't reboot on its own. Nothing appears to not work after the reboot and I can reacquire a network connection with the Zoom device any time I want.

Booting and shutting down with the adapter never installed is normal. An interesting failure, but one I'd like to eliminate.

Im currently using a Zoom 3G Wireless-N Router with a MF112 Mobile Broadband Dongle on the 3 Network.


ive been using this setup for over a year now and have had no issues.

I have 3 appliances that are sharing the wireless internet connection.

Iphone - Xbox360 and a Windows 7 Netbook

Yesterday i found that i couldn't establish an internet connection, i had connection to the zoom 3g router but no internet access.

To my great delight my iphone also refuses to right me internet access. A connection to the router is obtained but just no internet.

My partners Xbox 360 though has no problem accessing Xbox Live

i just dont get it.

Also whilst a connection is established to the router over my Acer aspire one Nbook. my small Gmail/Gtalk icon in the system tray suggests that im online and available. and can interact with contacts.

While this confuses me i fire up either Chrome or Fox and wait for my google.co.uk search homepage to appear in which it doesnt. if i load up a Bookmark like say Filehippo. it loads but the webpage is missing icons and its graphical interface.

I tried resetting the routers settings. rebooting my Iphone and Nbook.... Turning off the Xbox360 and then trying to see if i can obtain internet access. Nothing i try seems to solve this annoying issue. its driving me mad.

i havent installed / updated or accidental removed anything that could have caused this.

Now I'm trying to add a Compaq laptop running Win2K and a Linksys cardbus wireless-G adapter and not having much luck. If I set the card to dynamic IP and auto DNS, I get no connection to access point and, of course, no internet. I have no encription set, reports correct SSID, and signal is good. 'Ipconfig/all' lists the IP address as with IP Routing and WINS proxy listed 'Yes', DHCP 'Yes', Subnet, and Default gateway and DNS servers are blank. I have tried 'ipconfig/release' and it reports that the "addresses are already released". I then did 'ipconfig/renew' and it reported an error "could not perform request - please remove NIC cable and reboot". So I shut down the card, removed it and rebooted, reinstalled and no change.
I then went to static IP addresses and set it acording to what the router was reporting - I'm not sure if this is what HAS assigned or WILL assign if it sees the card. Anyway, I WAS able to get to the access point with static IPs but still no internet. I checked the browser setup (Firefox 1.5.xx) to make sure 'direct connection to internet' was checked.

- MS Client and file & printer sharing must be enabled on each machine.
- All NICs must have their node type = anything except p-node (peer to peer, or point-point).
* To check, open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL.
- XP's ICF firewall is permanently disabled. (Only necessary for pre XP SP2).
- All 3rd party firewalls are disabled, uninstalled and deleted (until connection is working).
- PCs have the same workgroup (helps, but not essential for XP/2K, necessary for 9X/ME).

Allow 15 mins after rebooting a PC for that PC to appear in the workgroup, or

The wired portion of the network is flawless, but the wireless one is really out of wack, and I don't know if it is the router itself kicking the wireless computer off, configuration settings in the router, or the wireless usb (D-link DWL g122) It kicks the computer off for long periods of time then randomly connects for a couple hours. Then it tries to connects, connects, and diconnects immediately after until I stop using the wireless for a couple hours. I don't know what to do or where to start, I generally can figure stuff like this out...but i feel helpless.

A:Wireless disconnects when on LAN

This is how Windows 7 works, by default "at least for me" it will choose the LAN connection over the wireless when ever it's available. Or I should say it will choose the faster connection or the one with the lowest metric value which is usually the LAN connection but can also be the wireless connection.

I think you meant to say advanced option of changing the metric, the link below may help you to change the metric so you can change this behavior.

Hi. I am having frequent disconnects from my Belkin G plus MIMO router. they occur at random times, sometimes more frequent then others. When plugged directly in, there are no problems, however when plugged into the router or wirelessly connected, disconnects range from every few seconds to every 5-8 minutes. There seems to be no pattern to disconnects. Our previous routers, a D-link and a linksys also had the same problems. I have tested this with multiple computers, a Gateway, a Sony, a Dell, and an Alienware, all with similar results.

Every so often, my WiFi on my PC will just stop working. It will disconnect from my wireless network, and then when I try to manually connect, it's not listed. Sometimes a restart works, sometimes it doesn't. This last time I had to restart twice. I know the WiFi router is not having problems, because my phone and AppleTV stay connected and stream just fine. The first times I noticed this, I was actually browsing the web and talking on Steam when it occurred. The last two times however, I left my computer on to finish up some downloads, came back in the morning, and it had disconnected and corrupted my downloads.

I have a wireless network set up in my home with 4 computers. I am constantly, yet randomly, losing my wireless connections. This has been happening for months and I have contacted dlink several times and followed all their suggestions - changing the channel, diabling, logging and wep and all this other useless information. They are now telling me that is is interference from a wireless phone that a neighbor must have. Which would be plausible to me if the hardwired system wasn't sometimes losing the connection as well.
I will never buy a dlink product again. My question on the irql error was never even responded to - ended up finding a fix online and appears to be a common problem with these particular wirless cards and xp ( it works fine on the 98 machines)

Sorry if the rest is long winded, but wanted to include as much information as I could.

I have moved the systems to be close to the router - didn't help. Was doing the same thing prior to sp2 being installed on the machines. I have tried connecting both with and with out the dlink software and still disconnects.

I have windows vista home premium 32 bit edition and wireless router. Roughly 2-3 times per day the internet connection will stop working and i have to restart the pc after which it works fine again.

I have 2 other laptops and a wireless skype phone connected to the same wireless router and they remain connected throughout so it appears not to be an issue with the router. Windows says there is an error which it cannot repair. I have tried every diagnostic and repair in the network and sharing center - also disabling and re-enabling the wireless connection, manually switching the wireless card on and off, manually restarting the router.

Nothing seems to work apart from restarting the laptop after which it works fine until the next time. There doesn't appear to be any correlation between what im doing at the time and when the connection breaks either.

I have a D-Link model DIR-625, and it always seems to disconnect when my mother logs on her computer. Is there some kind of setting on her computer that could be disconnecting us? When my dad is on his I never disconnect which is why I am wondering it must be something on her computer that's interfering with the signal or something. If I reset the router while she's still on, It will disconnect again within a few minutes. So where can I check if it could be her computer that's interfering with the signal?

A:wireless router disconnects when...

can we see an ipconfig /all from your PC and from your mothers - make sure we know which is which
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

A:Wireless connection disconnects

Read other 9 answers

Hey everyone,
I'm running Frontier internet (not of my own choice) and everything was working decently for several months until the past few weeks. My internet keeps disconnecting for absolutely no reason, from anywhere from 15 seconds to several minutes. Here recently it's been getting worse and has led me to post this. I disconnect every five or so minutes (usually for 15 - 30 seconds), which makes any sort of gaming impossible, and i can tell that it never stops because sometimes if i watch a stream it will stop for a while, and then come back picking up wherever it happens to be when my connection picks back up. The strange thing, is that with the short disconnects, which is almost always what i get with the exception of a few times tonight, my computer says that i'm still connected to the internet with a very good connection. It still shows that it is connected to the internet, but i literally can do nothing until it picks back up. My internet just hiccups or something. I'm using a linksys WRT54G Version 6 router. I really cannot figure out anything, and it's been so frustrating, because anytime i need or want to do something involving the internet it is a nightmare to work with. I'd really appreciate any help that can be put forth. Thank you in advance.

A:Random Wireless Disconnects

Hey, I have a bit of a problem with my wireless connection on my desktop computer. I use a USB Wireless connection to connect to my router. I get full bars when I'm connected but throughout the day I will get randomly disconnected for 5 or 6 seconds the re-connect. This does not happen to my laptop, or my roommates laptop. I've used two different USB wireless connections now, a Belkin and a dlink. Anyone know why this happens?

Hi wayne123,

I would reccommend re-installing or updating your wireless card's driver, as a first step.

You can do this through the Device Manager.

I put Windows 7 Pro 64bit on my computer about 2 weeks ago and I'm using a Belkin wireless USB adaptor to connect to the Internet.
I am connecting via Windows and NOT a 3rd party utility.

Some days the wireless connection is solid, but the majority of the time, the wireless drops and I have to reconnect it to the network.
This can happen once or several times during the day and it's pretty annoying, especially when playing games.

The router is in the next room and the signal strength is full.
When using this adaptor on XP Pro with the Belkin utility, I never had any wireless drops and the connection was solid all the time.

I've tried:
-Updating the USB adaptor drivers, but they're already up to date
-Setting the WLAN AutoConfig startup type to Manual and starting the service myself, but the disconnects still happen
-Switching power management off on the adaptor, disconnects still happen

Just wondering if there are any other suggestions in order to stop the wireless disconnecting.
Can't really run a cable but I am considering formatting back to XP which I don't really want to do.

You might want to go into your router settings and change to a different wifi channel. Windows 7 seems to be more sensitive to channel cross over problems than XP was.

You can also use this Wi-Fi scanner to look for unused channels in your area.

I've posted a few times in the past few days because it seems as though my PC is deteriorating before my eyes.

I had a problem a while back where the only way I could connect to my router was to manually reset the router (the wireless adapter recognized the network, but would give errors in connecting until I did the reset). After a while, that went away - I don't know how, it just stopped. Now I have a new problem. Every few minutes or seconds while connected my connection will just drop. It will still "say" that the computer is connected with internet access, and five bars signal, but I won't be able to open any web pages, and I get disconnected from teamspeak/IMs, and my latency in online games will go through the roof (as in, 6000+ ms). Also, for whatever reason over the past week my network connections went from:

Wireless Network Connection ---> Wireless Network connection 10


the microsoft miniport became wireless network connection 11
I have an ASUS 802.11n wireless LAN card, which is known in device manager as "ASUS 802.11n Wireless LAN Card #2", whereas it used to just be "ASUS 802.11n Wireless LAN Card".

What should I do?

Edit: Also, I can't rename the connection, it gives me an error saying that a connection with that name already exists (When trying to just revert it back to "Wireless Network Connection")

Hello, up until now my internet connection has been fine, using a wireless USB adapter to connect to my BT Home Hub router that is downstairs in my house.

A friend wanted me to download a game, i had trouble connecting to the game and one of the possible fixes of this was widely supported as "a working fix", which involved these steps:

1. open up windows search bar.
2. search for services.msc then press enter.
3. In the list of services, scroll down to "UPnP Device Host", click it and press "Stop service".
4. Now do the same thing but with the service "SSDP Discovery".
5. Exit the window and go to control panel-> Network and Internet-> Network and Sharing Centre-> Change advanced sharing settings (to the left)-> Under "network discovery" select to turn off network discovery

In hindsight i should not of been messing around with internet settings but whats done is done, doing these steps did nothing for me so i reverted them.

(re-enabled SSDP Discovery, for me, UPnP Device Host was already stopped as a service so i did not have to do that step)

only now after reverting these steps, im getting random disconnection issues from my connection to my router, (every few minutes).

im thinking that when changing SSDP Discovery back from stopped, to started, it did not enable/disable everything that i did originally, when i stopped it.

any thoughts?

You need to post details about the network, specifically the exact make and model of the router to start.
I'd also like to see this.
Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework. For machines with no Internet connection, download this NET Framework 3.5 Full Package on another machine and transfer it with removable media to the problem machine.

I have finally connected the laptop to the internet but everytime I reboot the computer, I lose my wireless connection. The message states that there are no available wirless networks. If I click on view available networks everything is grayed out.
I have to uninstall the wireless adapter, reboot and reinstall the adapter and set up the wireless netwoork again. When I reinatall the adapter I am told there is an available network but I am not able to access it so I have to add it as a preferred network.

Any suggestions?

A:Reboot disconnects wireless

Try turning off the proprietary "speed enhancements" of the adaptor. They could be keeping the card from initially connecting to the Access point.

Uninstalling and reinstalling drivers of any sort is to be avoided. If something worked, then you rebooted, and then it doesn't work, reinstalling the drivers is not the right answer. Simply rebooting is not going to "break" the drivers. It's much more likely that a configuration parameter needs to be tweaked somewhere to get it to come up. The question is what needs to be tweaked?

Hi all.

Newbie here I have a Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Omega Wireless Gaming Headset. When I play CS GO or use the net in general using my speakers = all good, stable connection to the net. When I use the Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Omega Wireless Gaming Headset, I get drop outs. Initially it dc's my net as soon as I turn them on, then it drops me out intermittently. I just received a 7 day ban from CS because I left the game an couldn't connect in time. I am guessing it may be interfering with my wireless connection when it is searching for a signal? Would be most grateful for your help.

It sounds as though the headset is using the same wireless frequency and channel as your internet connection.
You need to change one of them.
Get hold of inSSIDer which should show what is being used most heavily around you so you can choose some other settings.

So I figured I'd jump on here instead of making another new thread-condense (what do you tech's call it-aggregate?) some information.

I have been with AT&T Uverse at the current place I'm living for almost a month. The connection has been satisfactory for the first three weeks, but this last week my PC's connection has gone diggin through the Earth cause it sure as hell can't penetrate clearly.

(from a JohnWill post)

IP addresses of are normally caused by one of the following.

1. DHCP Service not running.
2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
3. Bad NIC card drivers.
4. Defective NIC hardware.

1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, reboot the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
4. Replace the Network Interface Card.

When on Windows 7 (release 7100, 64 bit), the wireless internet disconnects after/during downloading a file, game downloads updates, or even when playing an online game. The internet still appears to be connected to my network however a message mentions "limited access". If I disconnect from the network, I am unable to reconnect to the network (error comes up).

This issue does not occur when using Ubuntu (dual boot) or on other computers connected to the internet (using Win XP/Vista). And does not occur when directly connected to the internet.

I also have noticed somewhat of an issue that may be relating to this problem. My network adapter is Belkin Wireless G Desktop Card F5D7000. However, Windows 7 recognizes the network card as "Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card"

A:Wireless Constantly Disconnects

I've got the same exact problem. I have a Rosewill RNX-N2X wireless adapter. My computer does the same thing - the wireless connection comes up with limited access and it won't connect again.

Along with this though, when this happens, my CPU starts getting eaten up to almost 90% usage by something. When I try to shut down, it just locks at the shutting down screen, and I have to hold in the button.

The connection works most of the time when just surfing the web, but when making my account for this site it decided to disconnect. I've tried changing the wireless security, channel, drivers, etc... When I try a wired connection, the connection stays fine under heavy load, so it must be something with wireless drivers or something..Please help!

Edit: Also, my router is a D-Link DIR-655, but I don't think it's the problem. A Windows 7 laptop does not have any problems with this using the same router.

Edit 2: Nevermind, wireless disconnects even when surfing web after about 3-4 minutes, but downloads stop it instantly.

I have a new laptop with a built in 802.11G adapter. It connects to my router, but then disconnects periodically, sometimes it reconnects right away, other times I have to turn the wireless adapter off and back on before it reconnects. Any advice would be helpful. Is it possible it has something to do with SP2 as this is the first time I've ever used it and this is the first time I'm having problems.

A:Wireless disconnects constantly.

SP2 and the wireless adapters built in connection utility on alot of models do not play nice so usually you have to pick one or the other to use. As well you will probably want to check the channel your on as something else may be causing interferance. Have you tried your laptop in other wirelesas areas? You may want to do that to have piece of mind that your card and configuration of your laptop is working properly.

I have recently upgraded from XP for Win7. In my househouse we have 1 wired computer and several wired devices along with several wireless devices and 2 wireless computers. The issue seems to be that when the two wireless computers are accessing the network at the same time, they both will disconnect constantly and share a slow speed.

The touchpad (wireless pc 1) was working fine before and I was able to access the internet fine before on my desktop (wireless pc 2) when running XP. Since upgrading there seems to be some issue whereas the computers are recognizing each other on the network and causing some type of network flaw. Im completely at a loss as to what is causing this and have investigated the issue at lengths using google searches - this is my first forum post and any help would be much appreciated.

A:Wireless disconnects frequently...

Have you tried changing the wireless channel to one that isn't being used by your neighbors?
Windows 7 wireless networks are more picky about over crowded channels than XP and will disconnect if the channel is overloaded. You can change the wireless channel in your routers set up page. You should also change to WPA-2 with AES encryption if you aren't doing that already.

In general, channels 1, 6 and 11 are the best channels to use.

The Xirrus wifi inspector software will help you figure out which channels are the least crowded in your area.

I'm on an HP Pavilion laptop and access the internet using a Linksys wireless router. Once a day, the connection disconnects for about 5 minutes or until I reboot my router.

A:Wireless connection disconnects

I do not see anything that sticks out from the HiJackThis log.

I see this problem often. There seems to be many causes for this. I know that often Linksys routers will overheat--my advice is to make sure it isn't on top of your modem or anything that might provide excess heat.

Further, I would be most interested in the wireless network card. Have you made sure you have updates for it?

Also, have you tried running something like an streaming-audio player (i.e., iTunes) on some internet radio show to see if it keeps the connection active. Another idea would (if you have a Wireless G [WRT54G] router) be to turn on the logging feature to see when the connection drops and why.

Most likely, it will be something with the network card. But, there are other settings on those Linksys routers (like Beacon Interval) that can be modified to get it to work...

There is one other machine wired to the router.

Thoughts? Suggestions? What other info do you need?

A:Wireless laptop randomly disconnects

Some things you can try here.
For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
For wireless connections, try moving either the wireless router/AP or the wireless computer. Even a couple of feet will sometimes make a big difference.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.
Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

I always though XP was kinda broken because it would suffer intermediate wireless network disconnections. This was very irritating when you were downloading a file only to have XP disconnect you in the middle. Anyway, here's a fix.
"Wireless FiXP"
Geoff van den Ouden - 11/20/04

Wireless FiXP is a simple command line tool that enables the 'Wireless Zero Configuration Service' under Windows XP, waits for a connection and then again disables the service.

This tool has been developed since a lot of XP users have sudden disconnects when using a WiFi device. Although disabling this service usually solves the problem, a lot of people found out that on reboot they had to enable the service again to connect to their network. After that they had to disable the service again, because of the sudden disconnects.
Just put the 'Wireless FiXP.exe' wherever you like and right click on it and select 'Create shortcut'. Place the shortcut in the startup-folder of the 'Start Menu'. section in Windows. This is usually located in

C:\Documents and Settings\\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

If you want to enable it for all users on that machine, you can usually place it in:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
