I recently installed a usb wlan adapter model linksys ae2500 into a dell pc with a windows xp operating system.  About 1/3 of the time the wireless network connection shows disconnected after doing a normal system reboot.  (please see the attachment)  Otherwise its starts normally.  I am using only the windows zero config to manage the wireless network.  I have checked to make sure that the windows zero config service automatically starts.  Looking in the device manager i show the device shows no errors and has the latest driver.  This is happening on more than one pc with the same ae2500 installed.image
I'm looking for an answer to this issue OR ways to further troubleshoot.  Are there command line tools that i can run to make sure that the driver tried to load?  Is it possible to run a batch file at startup to ensure that the device is loaded properly?
