View Full Version : [ubuntu] WG111 connection drop at power ON and OFF

hi folks,

I've got a remote machine on ubuntu 8.04 connected to my LAN via a Netgear WG111 v3 (USB dungle). I've got it to work with the NDISWRAPPER.
It all works fine, picks up the network and connects ok.

The problem is when that machine boots up or shuts down, its network adapter goes UP or DOWN and causes the Wifi network to drop. I'm using a Lynksys WRT54G router and a laptop connected via wifi.

As anyone encounter such problem with that type of H/W and if there's something that can be done to avoid those network drops when that PC is booting or shutting down?
