WRT54GS Connection Problems

    Hello everyone,

    Laptop: Dell Inspiron 9300
    Wireless Adapter: Intel Pro 2915ABG
    Router: Linksys WRT54GS V4 running official firmware 1.05

    I've had this wireless router for a little over a month and have had no trouble until recently. My laptop can see the router but once connected it takes an abnormally long time to assign an IP address. After it assigns an IP address I can't access the internet or the network. I tried repairing the connection and still nothing. I've also tried resetting the router and installing/setting it up from scratch only to come up with the same problem. If I manually assign the addresses I can connect to the network.

    My network is using 64 bit, 10 hex, WEP. I found that the problem only occurs when I'm running secured. If I disable the WEP I can connect to the network just fine.

    My brother has the same router that I do but his is a version 1 running official firmware 3.37.2. He also uses the same security settings as I do. I've used my laptop here before and managed to connect to his network. But now I can't connect. I figured I would manually assign the addresses as it's worked at my house but it doesn't work here. If we disable his security settings on the router I can connect with no problems.

    To tell you the truth I'm not even sure if this is the router's fault as it could be a faulty adapter. But when I connect my Nintendo DS (Mario Kart DS) now I have to manually assign the addresses versus it doing it automatically, like before.

    I've posted on other forums and this site was very highly recommended. I pray that you guys can help me out.

    Thanks in advance.
