RE: question: Linksys 54G WAP - SSID name change issue

It is interesting that simply changing the ssid would have such an
effect. Is the new ssid exceptionally long or contain non-standard
characters? 

You also did not mention the make of the one or more wireless nics that
are having trouble with the new ssid. Maybe you problem is client side
and not with the access point

Subject: question: Linksys 54G WAP - SSID name change issue

Hi all,
 
I don't know if any of you are familiar with this issue or not, but at
home, when I change the SSID, I have at least one wireless device which
has an inconsistent connection. It connects and later drops, but
eventually re-connects again and repeats itself. If I change it back to
the default, no problem.  I have updated the firmware, and searched
through Linksys website for information about this problem, but it
persists.  Linksys tech support changing my antenna position, but that
didn't help. 

Any suggestions or solutions?

Thanks,

Joe
