Hi, i'm a very happy c3000 user currently using the original rom but have some wireless connection problems. I have a billionton wired ethernet CF card that works perfectly with DHCP on my home network. I also have a DLink 660W wireless CF card. This typically connects most times (sometimes i have to have several goes) but then i lose the connection after between 1 and 20 minutes. A ping shows that i am losing packets. The zaurus network monitor shows 100% link strength and quality but i can't ping any machines on my network. I have tried DHCP and hard wired settings with the same result. I am connecting to a DLink wireless accss point. I can connect to this with a wireless laptop fine so my network is up.

Anyone got any suggestions? My access point has many settings, am i able to change any wireless settings on my c3000?

Will things get better/more stable when cacko comes to the c3000?

thanks

I have a c3000 and use a buffalo wireless card with absolutely problems and never dropped. I've used mine C3000 using netfront on the internet for hours at a time.

I am going to guess either your router is located in a less than favorable location and you aren't getting a strong enough signal or your wifi card is bad.

Thanks for the suggestion Chris. I can sit 6 feet away from my access point with a laptop next to my zaurus, both using wireless connections. My network's in good health. I think it could either be the card as you say or I think the AP settings are clashing with the CF card's in some way.

Thanks
