Wireless freezes a few seconds every minute!

    I have a Vigor 2600We router/modem (Firmware 2.5) and a laptop with WinXP
    and a 3com wireless PCMCIA card.
    Every minute, my wireless connection "freezes" for about 2 or 3 seconds.
    After this, it will continue to work again for a minute. The connection
    isn't dropped, just frozen.
    If at the command prompt I enter ping -t, every minute I see a
    ping timeout, after which all continues again..

    Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this?

    The problem sounds like the Wireless Zero Configuration service built into
    Windows XP, which
    wakes up every 60 seconds and performs a full scan of 802.11 channels in an
    attempt to find a better access point.

    If the 3Com card comes with its own card management software, you could try
    turning off the XP management of the card.
