I have recently purchased the WUSB54GC wireless adapter from Linksys. After installing the software and connecting the adapter (then switching over to Windows Wireless Zero, since the Linksys monitor couldn't find the access point), it worked reasonably well for about a week. After a week's time, my internet disconnected and it has been sporadically reconnecting and disconnecting ever since. I've managed to forcibly connect to the wireless access point by repairing the connection, but this doesn't last for more than 5 minutes at a time (fewer than 2 minutes at the time of my post).

I'm running Windows XP with all of the latest updates. I have the latest driver for the adapter (there's only one available). I've already tried disabling security programs, reinstalling without the Linksys software (i.e. the driver only), using a USB extension cable to bring my adapter closer to the access point (right now it's about 5 feet away from the access point), using, variously, Network Magic (constantly disconnects), Wireless Zero (can't detect the network or constantly disconnects), and the original Linksys software (get a limited or no connectivity error) to connect to the internet. The adapter is functional, so I think I have a software problem, but I really have no idea what to do.

What kind of router do you use? Try to get the latest update from the manufactures website, and keep me informed.

I think that I'm connecting directly to the wireless access point.

As of yesterday, my connection doesn't last more than a minute anymore. Usually, 45 seconds or so.

schizosid,

I have the exact same problem. Chatted for hours with a linsys rep and they were not able to help. Installed with the disk, the downloaded driver, only the driver and not the software, tried system restore, etc etc. I have no solution but at best buy they will guarantee to get it working for $60. :S Let me know if someone knows the solution.
