Anyone with a Ralink wireless adapter?



Hi all,

I have one of these adapters (edimax) and the signal keeps on cutting out.

The signal comes out as very good/excellent but just say every 5-10 minutes it cuts out and then I have to click ' use ra config etc' and restart it.

I don't know whether there is a setting to stop it doing this.

Many thanks for your help

I had a Ralink built into a pc for nearly 2 years with no issue.

I just used the Windows Wireless connection utility.

I had a similar issue with mine - it kept cutting out.

I uninstalled it and the software and reinstalled it fresh.
I also used the updated software / drivers - it seems to have done the trick.
I also checked my channel

I use the railink software but have also used the windows wireless connection utility and get good results with both.

the other reason you may be getting cut off is if there is someone else using a wireless connection on the same channel.

try a fresh install and a different channel
