    I have recently been handed a project that my colleague was tearing his hair out with and I am now in the same boat.

    We have a v90L with XPe installed and have it connected via wireless. It uses the VIA USB Lan adapter drivers.

    I have put a brand new image on that Wyse supplied to us and it establishes a connection with our wireless network without any problems.

    However after about a minute it can no longer access the internet and the connection to the defualt gateway times out. The wireless connection shows connected at all times.

    We have other desktop/laptop machines with wireless cards that access the internet with no problems. If you disable & re-enable the connection on the wyse terminally manually the connection becomes live again then drops out yet again.

    I have had lengthy email conversations with wyse and they have explained that there is an issue with VIA drivers and Cisco infrastructure??. They sent me a revised driver that was supposed to address these issues but it didn’t work!

    Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing these failures as I am just about to scrap the whole idea of using Wyse terminals to be honest.

    This was an issue the VIA based chipset has with Cisco access points (google and you will see this).

    To be honest its a while since I was across this one and I believed it was resolved. Also the issue as I saw it was not so much dropping as not being able to roam between access points.

    Unfortunately as this will require a software update you will have to keep progressing this with Wyse.

    As a mater of interest, if you use a different USB wireless card (non-Wyse) does the issue remain? Just to confirm it is the card an not something screwy with the OS setup,

    Have you found anything out about this issue at all? I have been having the same exact issue with our V90L devices.

    I have noticed however that the machine when the connection drops, the machine does re-associate to the wireless access point, and gets an IP address, however, it is unable to access anything.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
