WG311v3 thru ndiswrapper - essid resetting+
 
Howdy!

I've got a NetGear WG311 v3 54g wireless card in my computer. I've got kernel 2.6.14 preemptive. Using ndiswrapper v1.5 and the NetGear driver for XP "DriverVer=02/22/2005,3.1.1.7". I unsuccessfully tried the drivers for the TRENDnet TEW-423PI with the same chipset that seemed to work for others.

My problem is that the essid will reset to "off/any" aparently at random. I can change the essid back with iwconfig and everything works right away.

Any ideas??

I've got this going in cron but I would really like a better solution:
#!/bin/sh
ping -c 1 192.168.1.1
if [ $? -ne 0 ] ; then
echo `date` - resetting essid >> /var/log/wirelessreset
iwconfig wlan0 essid theessid
fi

Thanks,
Matt
