    I have a WPC54G ver3 notebook adapter and frankly, I'm just about ready to pitch it. My wireless network was fine, then a few weeks back it stopped working. I thought it had been because I recently downloaded SP2, but I unintstalled the service pack update with no luck. At first I couldn't get past acquiring network address, but now I just can't connect. Every now and then I can connect (or it appears that way) but I still can't use the internet and the "available network" ends up unavailable before I can try tweaking anything. I've reinstalled the adapter twice and it still doesn't work. Not long ago, I set it up so that windows would configure the settings. Unforunatly, I couldn't find any WPA support and now the application that came with the adapter won't do anything beyond open up so I've had to scrap my WPA security altogether. In fact, I thought maybe it was the security settings that were causing problems (maybe they had been changed, I thought), but it still won't connect even on an unsecure network. It won't give me any message, it just won't connect.

    Please, somebody has to have some idea...

    Alright, I'm connected through the wireless network right now. I don't know what changed between now and this afternoon, but I'm online. The problem is, it seems a little slow (the wireless connection was practically identical to the wired connection before I started having problems) and the network is unsecure and I'm afraid to secure before I figure out what's going on.
