I wonder if anyone can help,

I have recently purchased 2 x Netgear Wireless USB Nics.

Got them configured and working nicely, using ad hoc (ie no access point, just adapter to adapter)

I was listening to some music over the connection, and noticed it cutting out every 15 ish seconds..

I then started a ping -t to the other pc, and its fine for about 15 seconds, then gives me a time out, or a response of about 3000ms.. after one of these, it promptly jumps back to normal..

I have tried the latest drivers for the Netgears, and even tried different machines running xp. I spoke to Netgear support earlier today, and they tell me its a problem specifically with XP and USB connectivity, they tell me i'm going to have to wait for the service pack to come out.


Can anyone make any suggestions, pretty please, this is driving me mad!

Welcome to the forums simonmoseby.....................:D

Try going to DSL Reports and running their Tweak Test and Their Speed Test.

The Tweak test will give you a good idea about packet retransmissions and such. It's a good sight to configure your broadband settings.

If its a problem that Microsoft will be addressing with a service pack then theres nothing you can do but wait ... on the plus side the service pack will be out pretty soon.
