      As with Bob75, I'd suggest a conflict between Windows and the Wireless Card software.

      I had exactly the same problem using a D-Link adapter - the D-Link software had taken over the management of the connection.

      I solved it by uninstalling the D-Link software, and using Windows to manage the connection. I also used IP Adress reservation on my router to assign a particular IP address to the MAC address of the Wireless card.

      Well it worked for me, so hopefully it may help you too.

      Good luck!

      ok thanks. I did try uninstall the d-link software, but after this it seems the problems started. I lived with it for a while before re-installing it, but with the same problems.

      I`ll give the ip address reservation a go tonight.

      thanks for your help.

      Fixed the problem at last!
      I took the wireless card out , restarted XP without it, then shut down and put it into another slot.
      Now it boots much faster and wireless is available instantly.

      thanks all for your help
