    Ok, so I've got this problem. I wasn't able to connect to my WRT54G at all with one of my laptops (Alienware Area-51, internal Intel Pro wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI adapter). It had been working fine, then nothing. Got it to finnaly connect after mucking around with it all night and figured it worked. Nope, now it connects but I'm not able to use the internet. My other laptop (Dell Latitude, Belkin wireless notebook card FSD6020) connects and has access to the internet no problem. Same with my desktop (wired). Can't for the life of me figure it out. Any takes on that?

    There's that and the fact that the internal Intel card keeps being detected, then suddenly lost by the system. One minute it's there, the next it's not even registered by the computer... I don't quite get that part yet...

    sounds like a hardware problem, maybe try a PCMCIA card, or try to specify an address, gateway, dns etc. with what you have when it does work.

    k, so I took the belkin off the other laptop and tested with that, it has no problem connecting to the router or accessing the internet through it. I'm going to try and do a complete uninstall of the internal Intel and see where that gets me.

    On a side note, the Intel is able to detect the network, but it refuses to let me connect to it, I can click connect as offten as I want, but it won't connect.

    k, so that didn't work... The device manager alone is able to detect the Intel adapter, network connections registers it as not being plugged in, and well, the rest of the systems acts according to that - as if it wasn't plugged in.
