    Hello to you all!

    I have a WRT54GS with Alchemy, a Desktop with Linksys GS PCI-wireless card and my girlfriends laptop with the Linksys GS PCMCIA wireless card.

    I have problems getting either of the PC's connected if one of them are already connected. Trying to connect from Windows, it takes forever to get dhcp adresses from the router and since the WRT is connected to my dsl-modem i get no internet.

    We both have our msn messenger and skype clients running. If the already connected pc also runs some internet radio stream it will be impossible for the other pc to get in. So for now we have to shut down any internet-downloads ( streams) or im programs on the already connected pc to get in (on the LAN) with the other. After that both computers can stream or whatever without any problems.

    I haven't done any "crazy" configs on the router. It runs with alchemy as dhcp server with wpa-psk(tkip) decryption.

    Any Idea what I can do to fix this problem?
    -Just ordered another notebook, so in the next future there's going to be three pc's competing for accesss...

    Best regards

    I have a solution or to be more exact a work-around for the problem.

    I just deactivated the dhcp-server on the wrt and set up the clients with static ip-adresses.

    right now alchemy is pretty buggy. try anohter firmware like dd-wrt.
    did you try to reset the router.
