Well I still stand by the fact that I am getting better signal strength and speeds with my USB apdapters then I ever did with my PCI Cards. That said though I have having one issue, and hoping somebody here might have an idea. My USB adapters keep losing connection, it's not random or anything but rather only seems to happen during extended periods of not using the internet. For Example it will be connected when I go to sleep but when I wake up it will not be connected, yet if I start a ping -t to the router when I go to sleep then when I wake up in the morning the connection will be fine. On the other hand my laptop is using a PC card and never loses connection so I know it's not the router or anything like that. I image that somewhere somehow the computer is powering down the USB ports which is causing the Adapter to lose connection. I have gone through the Device manager and unchecked the opion to "Allow Windows to turn off this device to save power" on all o my USB ports, I have gone through and set all my power managment to Always On, and there is no power options for the adapter it's self in the device manager. Anybody have any other ideas on what i can try?? TIA James **Edit** It just occurd to me to grab a powered USB Hub, figure that might help, so I'll try that tonight. Suggestions are still Welcome though.
