    Okay, there are enough people having the same problem I am hoping we can put our heads together and solve it.

    I upgraded both my routers (Linksys WRT54G-V2.2 (If I recall correctly). In any event a revision level of 7, and my Buffalo WHR-54G-HP. My laptop was as happy as could be Intel 3945ABG. My wife however couldn't connect to either access point Intel 2200BG. I made sure here drivers were 100% up to date etc. I noticed another poster saying they could connect under Ubuntu Linux but not XP...

    Has anybody been able to get the ND version to connect under XP to a 2200BG? What about using that other firmware.... DD-WRT they are basically using ND drivers has anybody compared if they could connect using it?

    dd-wrt has a different kernel and newer drivers I believe (plus VINT for old)

    I have no problem connecting my 2200BG to my wrt54gs 1.1 (core-rev 7) with old drivers, and have no intention of using ND right now!

    Most 2200's can't connect with the ND driver. The odd one can, for no particularly apparent reason. Many 3945ABG's also have problems it seems. There are several OEM manufacturers of the cards, varying slightly in design, and many driver versions. Which is probably why some work and some don't. DD-WRT's driver is much newer, but that driver requires a newer Linux kernel than Tomato currently uses. So nothing to do except wait hopefully!

    Here is my "report from the field":

    With the ND-1.22 on two units with corerev=9 (one WRT54GS and one WHR-HP-G54) one Compaq and one Dell version of 2200BG respectively could not associate.

    The XP 32-bit drivers were the latest from Intel, and PSP (power save polling) was DISABLED.

    The non-ND version worked okay, however.

    I really, really, really hope that the latest Broadcom driver will be incorporated successfully into Tomato.
