Hi there, I have installed a Cisco AiroNet CardBus Wireless LAN Client Adapter (CB21AG) PCMCIA in my laptop.

Earlier when i used the old version of the drivers my laptop would become sluggish and the mouse would not move properly.

Later i downloaded the latest drivers from cisco. Now this is the problem i am facing -

If the card is plugged in for the first time it acquires the IP Address and works neatly. But If i unplug the card out and plug it back in again, then even though the IP address is acquired the network is not reachable, ping also does not work.

I have had no issues with this card under linux works well with MadWifi drivers.

My tech specs are as follows -

Acer 2403 laptop with 512 MB RAM and 40 GB HDD

Windows XP PRO with SP 1

NetGear WGRV164 Wireless router with no WEP or WPA, open access.

This is a weird behavior. Did you try using a different card and check if you are seeing the same issue?

Yes I tried changing with 2 other cards, and i get this problem.

I recently formatted my laptop and loaded XP with SP2, yet this problem persists, I have completely given up and now I have the mind to throw these cards in the lake near my place.

I am totally confused is it the OS problem or the card proble, cause it works normally under linux with the Mad Wifi drivers. I bought this card only because of the Atheros Chipset which is highly recommended in the case of WiFi Testing and WEP.
