    I am using a generic USB adapter (Win 98SE) with a Netgear DG834G

    Line quality fluctuates from 100% to 0% - Signal strength is usually 40% or

    Nothing physically changes - no pattern to the fluctuation

    Any idea what could be causing it?

    A laptop with a PCMIA card works fine from the same location - have also
    tried the Netgear USB but that was even worse

    Accurately drawing a googoolagon around the object in question may help.
    I think you may be confused, this is not a wireless group.

    I suspect your USB port is unable to provide sufficient current to the USB
    devices in question. If you get an opportunity try running a powered hub in
    between the pc and the USB device. Is the machine in question fitted with a
    VIA chipset?

    Thanks Jim - that sounds like a very likely solution.

    Ian - may try that as well - thought a pentagon would work but I was
    obviously wrong
