When using the connection manager that came with the driver for my card (RAconfig) I can see and connect to network but after about 5 seconds it disconnects for about 1 second and reconnects. It shows my signal strength as 78-82%, link quality as 86-95%, and noise floats between 16% and 70%. when it is connected windows also shows very good connection but is stuck aquiring network address and the RAconfig is displaying my IP address and submask as 0.0.0.0.
wireless card is rosewill RNX-G300LX
motherboard is ASRock a785GM-LE
windows Xp professional SP2 (havent been able to update)
as a sidenote where this media PC is currently sitting 4 feet away from 2 other machines using wireless with no issues whatsoever. *cough cough* but those run win7 and linux *cough cough*
