So I just wanna to thank you guys again for your help..

ps. I see people around the forum talking about "+rep".. I'm guessing it's some kind of point you give people who give help/ a solution or what ever... I will of course give this rep to both you, Ken, and also Kari if possible..
Just let me know how this "rep-thing" works


IM glad you are working and the rep ins't necessary but its easy to do. On the persons post is a set of scales. click on them and write why you waqnt to give them rep (make sure the approve radio button is checked unless you disapprove) and click the bottom. thats it. You can give up to 10 rep's a day if you think ppl deserve it.

fedora 11 + win 7 x64 + other


I got the same problem with 2 laptops both have
Intel(R) WiFi Link
one 5300 AGN
and second 5100 AGN
and the belkin wireless N router F5D8236-4 v2 (01)
from my tests I could figure out that the drops mostly happening when there is a big load/hit (e.g. fast fw a HD movie located on a wired NAS) on the wireless router comming from this adapters using the latest drivers from intel website.
When I use the old drivers that windows comes in with the drops appear to be less frequent but still present.
So I am thinking that there is something wrong between the belkin device and Intel drivers since the same laptop running linux fedora 11 works without drops.
Perhaps someone with more driver experience could help out here or maybe there is a way to get from the belkin device any snmp or syslog to get a clear view what exactly is happening.
For the moment I temporarily fixed it by buying a second wifi card express also from belkin which works flawlessly. On the second I'm using linux all-through I had some initial problems connecting to N networks which now are over.
I know that the N standard is still new but perhaps intel or belkin guys working there should get together at a coffee or something and fix this.
