350 Series Win 2k says Network cable Unpluged

Im Trying to Set up A 350 Series Wireless Pci Card on Windows 2000.

Ive set up the SSID & the Client Name using the Aironet Client Utility (ACU 5.02). Ive Upgraded the Firmware on the Card to 4.25.30 and the Access Point to 11.23T, and im using the NDIS version 8.2.3.

ACU says the Card is Associated to the Access Point. But Windows says the Network Cable is Unpluged.

Any Help would Be Appreciated.

Re: 350 Series Win 2k says Network cable Unpluged

If you are using MAC address authentication, you may not have the MAC in the Radius server or wherever you are pointing it at.....Also, we are using MAC auth. and when I used 11.23t I couldn't use authentication, so I had to go back to 11.10ti. I was getting that same message you are getting.

Im Not using MAC Auth.

The AP Log says that the PC is Associated And Authenticated.

Ive also Run a Link test from the AP successfully. But I can not Ping the machine from the AP or another PC on the LAN

Re: 350 Series Win 2k says Network cable Unpluged

Hi I have the same symptoms.

Sometimes I can force open a connection with continous ping from a ethernet computer, but the reply's stop as soon as I i.e. open iexplorer.

Then as I close it, it continues to reply to ping again. Any ideas would be appreciated....

Re: 350 Series Win 2k says Network cable Unpluged

I found a way to at least get it to work, but VERY unstable. By installing the card as Cisco Systems 350 series Wireless LAN adapter instead of Cisco Systems 350 series PCMCIA Wireless LAN adapter. It should be noted, that I plugged in the card in a collegues machine identical to mine, and it worked instantly. Without adding any drivers! So I think its a software issue rather than a connection issue.

Here is a ping i made with the above mentioned connection.

I recently had this issue with a new Dell Laptop with an integrated Wireless mini-PCI card. It turned out to be a hardware/OS issue. A program called "WinRoute" needed to be loaded. This file and further information is available on the Dell web site.

Re: 350 Series Win 2k says Network cable Unpluged

I am having trouble with the data rates cycling from 11mbps to 2mbps on a Cisco 350 PCI adapter. I have 3 350 AP's on a MaxRad 120 degree sector antenna, chanels 1, 6, & 11. I did not have the issue with 1 line up to a 3-way power splitter and the AP on channel 11 but now I see this issue. When the client adapter sees the 11 mbps the association will disappear. I am also seeing SSID mismatches in the status section.

Not sure if this helps but the network cable unplugged appears when we change data rates.
