    I cannot connect wirelessly to WRT54G when windows starts up. i have to manually right click the wireless network and click repair then it will work. any ideas how to fix this problem?

    additional info:
    WRT54G v3 flashed with sveasoft alchemy
    using it as an Access Point. (DHCP turned off, connect to my other wired router by lan port)
    WPA security
    ibm t30 cisco mini pci
    xpsp2

    again the problem is everytime windows starts up. It wont automatically connect. i have to right click on the wireless network icon and repair the wireless network, then everything will run smothly. thanks in advance.

    Are you sure you can't physically get onto the Internet? My XP SP2 machine has a problem with the wireless system try icon. It displays the little moving dot indicating "acquring network address" while I'm actually able to browse the Internet.

    Using AC power, or turning off power management for the wireless card, solves the display problem.

    Instead of "repairing" the network, can you go to Network Connections and simply hit F5, or refresh, to see if the problem goes away? If so, it's definitely a display problem only.

    I've had this problem with xp sp2 and the linksys wireless network monitor. Despite being disabled the windows wireless zero connection tool was somehow interfereing witht he linksys tool and fighting over the network card. I gave up with the linksys software and just let windows do it itself which works fine (except the manual typing in of the 128 bit WEP code...)

    My advice make sure you are only using one wireless monitor...
