This is a weird problem. When I connect to my router (linksys wrt54g-v5), doesn't seem to matter what kinda adapter I use, my computer is shut down. No warning, it's as if the power to the building is shut off. This was very annoying at first. I've been avoiding this problem by selecting stealth mode on my firewall (Kaperski anti-hacker). But I just found out that the stealth mode does not allow me to use port forwarding which I would like to use. Now the problem is annoying again. Anyone every hear of anything like this?

If you uninstall that firewall do you have the same problem?
Maybe a virus or trojan specifically giving the firewall a hard time?

Yes, I would scan the PC with a good anti-spyware and anti-virus software... And make sure all the latest OS patches are applied.

Thank you, I tried both ideas, but it didn't work and I doubt that is the problem. If I connected to a different AP it would not do that. For some reason it does with the one we setup: the linksys router. I'll try contacting Cisco...
