Hello all,
I have a D-link 524 connected to Dynalink RTA 230. My main PC has a D-link PCI card (compatible to 54Mbps) which is in a separate room to the Wireless router and Modem.

I get intermittent ping loss 25-50% and I cant pin point what the problem could be. Basically it just stops working while browsing. A reboot to modem and router usually fixes it.
I logged into DI-524 to check yesterday, I couldnt see anything wrong, but then lost connection again.

Can someone point me to the right direction of finding fault in this scenario please?

good to hear that. what version of the firmware is it?

I use DI-524 too but it is with cable modem. I know there's one version of the firmware that I avoid using as it crapped itself too often.

The actual issue was the PCI card I was using  D-Link AirPlus®G DWL-G510 with a version C drivers. Dlink website only had version A and B. So looked up and updated. I am yet to update Di-524's drivers, iff it still creates issues.

BTW..Do you sometimes have to ping the router to wake it up? I needed to and if that didnt work, I had to keep my XBOX 'on' (connected to the router) so its awake....Probably issue with Wake on LAN with Drivers of the PCI card, will update if it happens again..

I don't need to ping the router but with the last firmware update fw1.05 that i did with the router it just restart itself or drop the connection and rebooted. But when i revert back to fw1.03 it is all good again.
