    I am connected to the router and the router is connected to the internet.
    But I cannot ping the router or access the internet.

    I want to be able to switch bewteen wired (all week) and wireless (weekend).

    ADSL connection, DHCP

    For wireless:

    WPC55AG card in WinME laptop
    Odyssey Client (in place of the Linksys WLAN Monitor)
    D-Link G604T wireless router connected to WinXP desktop

    For wired:

    Eject the card from laptop.
    Unplug the router from wall.
    Remove the Linksys and Odyssey drivers from laptop.
    Plug in Dynalink ALE070 USB ADSL modem to wall.
    And then to laptop.

    Why are you going through the trouble of installing/uninstalling the software and driver every time you switch connection? You should be able to simply eject the PCMCIA adapter and go directly to plug in the modem to notebook.

    Through trial and error I learned that OdiM.vxd (Odyssey virtual driver) was causing problem when I unplugged the wireless router and connected via my wired USB modem. As soon as the USB modem made its connection to the ADSL, the screen would roll once and I would lose the connection.

    So, with respect to wireless, I guess you cannot give me any hints why I cannot connect to the internet, even though Odyssey says I'm connected to the router, authenticated, strong signal, etc.
