I'm running a 54g wireless network and experience random signal level drops after a couple of minutes if I set the network to be encrypted.

This doesn't appear to happen with the network unencrypted.

Anyone have any idea of how to fix the problem. (Swapping channels just gives another 2 minutes of use before the signal drops again.)

Alternatively how secure is the mac address security feature, will it stop people listening in on the network.

I believe this happens when your WPA key is changed regularly..

For Linksys products, this feature is called "Group Key Renewal" under the edit security settings window. Just set the value to 0 and you should be fine.

Thanks junbin, I will check that out and see if it is the cause of the problem.
