I had a similar problem when I first bought my Netgear G router with speedboosting. The problem, apparently, is Windows-related. Speedboost works by bursting the connection beyond 54Mb by using simultaneous spreads. Windows XP detects this boost and adjusts itself to the change. However, when the burst settles back down (every few seconds to a few minutes), Windows XP interprets this as a drop in the signal and thus, drops the connection. It then reconnects at the current speed and the cycle repeats itself.

You have two options for a fix:

1. Use a Linksys-G card that has software to accept the burst (taking Windows XP completely out of the loop). Or

2. Upgrade to RC2 of Windows XP SP2. This problem has been corrected in SP2.

I believe you are attempting to refer to a Category 5 (or Category 5e) cable with RJ45 ends. RJ45 is the type of connector. Category 5 (a.k.a. Cat5/Cat5e) is the type of cable.

As for SP2, you shouldn't be using pirated software. That is the leading cause to the spread of viruses and rising costs for Windows users.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
