Belkin Driver Error - Windows BSOD / unstable connection

    I get regular crashes and I am sure that they are related to the
    wireless connection (usually with too much web activity eg eMule). The
    following crash occurred as the 3Com ADSL Router stopped transmitting.
    Usually I fix this by rebooting but in this case I switched off the
    power to the router for 10 seconds. When the power came back on, the
    internet connect re-established itself. I then sent an email and went to
    browse a website and the computer froze for a couple of seconds and
    rebooted.

    The BSOD error is caused by bcmwl5.sys (I believe it is the driver for
    my PCI Belkin card)

    The windows error report is as follows:

    BCCode : a BCP1 : 7472614C BCP2 : 00000002 BCP3 : 00000000
    BCP4 : 804DC42A OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

    C:\DOCUME~1\John\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER933b.dir00\sysdata.xml

    I have a XP SP2 Athlon 2500 with 1gb of PC3200 DDR. Does the error
    suggest anything to you? I have the latest drivers and connect to a 3Com
    3CRWE754G72 with the Belkin F5D7000UK.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the help, but lets be honest, the advice is a bit crappy.
    If something doesn't work, buy a new one from a different vendor? That's
    £25 down the pan. I don't think I'll buy a netgear on principle after
    this...

    Apparently the problem is well known to chipset makers and is down to
    SP2....according to an ASUS tech.
