    When I'm running my desktop hooked directly up to a WRT54G, everything is fine. However, when I load up my laptop using a WPC54G wireless adapter, the internet will function normally for only a few mins and then on the laptop the webpages never load up. On the desktop, speed is slowed VERY considerably and, as example, Outlook is stuck on "connecting/authorizing". I talked to tech support twice and the second time he had me update my firmware and it made the connection alive for only a few more mins. Any ideas are apreciated.

    Can you try connecting your laptop to the WRT via LAN?

    If you have the same problem maybe your Laptop is infected?

    I can give that a try, but I'm almost 100% positive that internet works fine when it's directly connected. (haven't used it connected to router but to the cable modem)

    i have the same problem.
    Windows XP
    Toshiba M40
    WRT54G v3.1
    the connection only can work for few minutes. Although it shows "not connected", i still can connect to websites untill it shows "unable to connect to wireless network".
