Group Key Update Interval causing disconnects

6 posts in this topic

I use voip a lot, like Skype, and I randomly got dropped calls. This happens every hour. ex, x:22 so at every 22 after the disconnects happen. I changed my Group Key Update Interval to 7200 seconds from the 3200 seconds and now it happens every 2 hours. So I am assuming this is causing the disconnects. It last just a second, and it doesn't say the Access point signal is lost, it just is interupted. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have a DGL-4300 1.6, and an Atheros AR5006X. Thanks!

I'm using the latest drivers from http://www.atheros.cz/download.php?atheros...6G&system=3

The card is an Abit Airpace WIFI, based on the AR5006X.

I had better luck letting windows manage my card. Atheros client utility is nice, but it always gave me problems. If you are letting Windows manage it then try ACU. The drivers Atheros provides I've never had problems with, but you can also try using Abit's drivers.

This was my thinking and the reason for recommending the abit drivers. Vista is still a bit of a pain when it comes to drivers, I know the wifi is one of the most troublesome areas.

I hope the original poster posts back and lets us know the outcome.

CCUK, I've tried the Official Abit drivers. I think they do help. I have also updated my router firmware to 1.8 (just came out). All seems to be good now.

However, I do get a lot of DHCP activity.

The lease time is 1440 minutes, the default, so that can't be the issue, and the connection seems to be stable, so it really isn't doing anything.

Other than that, this card has been a nice little PCIe Wifi card.
