On my Win2K system it leaks handles at the rate of 32/minute. Soon after bootup it is using more handles than any other process Jonathan M
This may be linked to Linksys Wireless-G cnotebook cards, but I just accessed this page over a 54 mbps wireless connection using a Linksys notebook card AFTER I removed the odhost.exe process using the Windows 2000 Task Manager. So maybe it's necessary for the card to start up -- I don't know -- but it's not necessary for the card to *work*, at least under Win 2K. Randy.
Its a file which is required by linksys wlan monitor to work

ODHOST.exe is a bona fide device driver for many brands of wireless adapters. However, there are viruses that hijack this file by adding virus code into the file. Some Virus scanners will disable even norrmal, un-modified ODHOST.exe files. Theres no simple answer. It can be a valid file. It can also be an infected file. Mike C
My computer with Xp started running really slow after I installed the linksys wireless card. In reviewing the processes running I found ODhost taking up over half the memory after killing it my wireless still works fine. However it keeps coming back randomly Debbie
all i know is that when i removed it on my win 2000 windows stopped letting me log on for very long wven when i cna log on it kicks me off soon after i have found nowere that i can replace it either AJ
