    Since about one month I've got Vista on my new system:
    Core 2 Duo E6600
    Asus P5B deluxe
    2 x 1024 MB DDR2 Kingston
    MSI x1950 Pro 256 MB
    Linksys wmp54g pci wifi

    I've had this problem since I installed Vista on my system. The problem is
    that when I have a lot of data traffic, the range of the wireless network
    totally disappears. The only remedy is a system reboot, network repair
    doesn't help.
    Also when Vista wakes up out of the sleep-modus or when Vista starts up,
    Vista sometimes doesn't recognize the PCI-adapter as a Linksys. Sometimes
    Vista doesn't recognize the Linksys at all, or the adapter is recognized as a

    Because I couln't find a solution for this, I've pulled the adapter out of
    my system and I attached a SpeedTouch 120 USB Wifi device. But also with this
    device the network range totally disappears after a lot amount of data
    traffic. Just as with the Linksys, the only remedy is to reboot the system.

    Does anyone recognize these problems? I hope someone can help me.

    I'm sorry you're experiencing trouble. There could be a number of causes as
    to why you are losing your wireless connection. First, make sure your
    wireless adapter, and router are Vista compatible. Second, you may have an
    outdated driver for your network adapter. Third, you might have a mismatch
    between the security settings in your wireless client and your AP. Fourth,
    you could be experiencing radio frequency interference from nearby devices;
    or the client is at the periphery of the RF range of the wireless AP.

    Check these, and please post back.
