Anyway, down to the issue.
I am having trouble with my USB WLAN card that I use to connect to my router for the internet. I recently upgraded to a new computer that I built with a friend (I will post Specs below). Basically what keeps happening is, the USB device keeps dropping out or loosing connection with the router. I know this can happen sometimes with WLAN but I seriously doubt it happens as often as mine does.
I have it to automatically connect to the home network so when it drops out, it reconnects, sometimes it's instant other times it takes about 3-5mins. The router appears to be fine as it never dropsout, maybe the odd lose of DSL connection but otherwise it's fine. However I id have software that I installed with the WLAN card but can't locate the CD. I don't think that could be the problem, as the device still works without that software.
The USB device is a Sitecom Network USB adaptor 54G (about 4 years old) Model number: WL-172 v1 001 (802.11 bg WLAN, I know the 'n' is the new fast one but that's mine). The router is a Zyxel p-600 series.
