Ok...this is weird. If I use a lancard, all is fine...but when I try to use my wmp54g it acts like its connected, but i have no connectivity despite the screen saying I do. I had a friend who is very much expert tweak everything (by remote, he is on east coast, Im in Oklahoma). The only time I get internet is via the lancard. Ive tried everything I can think of having installed several networks. The card was 100% ok just two weeks ago in a previous pc. (That was sisnlaws pc, she moved out). Now though the new pc seems ok, the card seems ok, until I actaully try to connect to the WRT54G wirelessly. Oh, the new pc is on the table with only a printer blocking the distance between WRT54G and wmp54g. Tried both, the default setup and the specifics (putting in all the values). Seriously considering going ahead with wired, but that means 50-80 ft of cable to go from office to den (where new pc will end up). Any other ideas? I relize what I say here is sketchy. Oh, another item, Though I can install a lot of things, the linksys cd doesnt seem to want to install (just does a popup and disappears). Though I can do the install by going into the setup file (installshield)...bypassing the cd's primary startup. No matter, I was able to update the card via web when connected via lan.
