    Hi, I actually have a WRK56G which is the toned down version of hte WRT54g... the router and adaptor was working fine until a few days ago when the internet just went down. I tried everything but nothing worked so I just pressed the factory reset button my router. that fixed the problem on my hardwired computer but it seems that i must reinstall the driver for my adaptor to work. Right now, on my other computer (the one attached to the adaptor) it just keeps saying acquiring network address. this happened to me before and i fixed it by reinstalling the driver. But now the CD is lost... I'm not sure if there are driver's available for download. I would really appreciate the help because I need to get back onto my own computer... thanks.
