RE: question: Linksys 54G WAP - SSID name change issue
From: "Joe George" <j.george () conservation org>

Thanks for replying, Ray.

To answer your questions:

- The new SSID is only about 6-8 characters long and did not contain any
non-standard symbols or characters. 

- Wireless NIC's on both devices are standard Dell TruMobile 1300.
Hardware is working optimally.  Didn't have any issues with them upon
connection to any other wireless network.  

Lynn suggested I call Linksys again, so I will likely try that. If I
have no luck, I will just move on with my life...I'll use it as is,
until the WAP or my work is over and is asked to see the Great
011100110111000001101001011100100110100101110100 in the sky...

No biggie, but if you have any further suggestions or questions, let me
know.   

Thanks to all for your help! 

Joe

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

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
