DWA-125 Drop Connections


#1

I have two WD HD TV Live, both running with D-Link DWA-125, and they both seem to drop connections very often (about every 4 minutes) when streaming videos from my server.  When I check on the network connection status, it shows that it can find an IP Address, but it can’t find the DNS Server.

I don’t seem to have this issue streaming from my PC wirelessly or from my XBOX 360.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue with this USB Adapter?

WD HD TV Live Firmware: 1.01.11

Wireless USB Adapter: DWA-125

Wireless Router: WRT54GL

I’m getting the same annoying problem with the TrendNet 644 USB Wireless adapter.  Everything works for a while until I play a video (typically XVID+MP3.AVI) for 5-10 minutes and then it dies.  I’m using Vista.  I found some references to Vista and Windows 7 dropping connections but so far these solutions haven’t worked for me but maybe they will for you:

Are you sure that it is USB Wireless adaptor problem and not the network dropping problem. Can you for instance watch youtube  without dropouts. If this is OK than I would assume that there nothing wrong with your adaptor.

Also there’s another thread about this in the forum, “network drops every approx 4 minutes”.

It seems to work fine when I’m using YouTube, but if I’m streaming videos off a server, it would disconnect.

It would basically disable the whole network connection, so I cant even get to YouTube after that.
