    You may have connected to you access point, but not the Internet. What does the client software indicate. Try accessing the router/accespoint by entering its IP address and try to ping www.yahoo.com. There are no special setting. My WPC54GX connects to my WRT54GX and takes ten to twenty seconds to connect to the Internet, when the system first boots up.

    1. can you get to OTHEr sites?
    2. Are you using PPoE DSL or cable modem?

    I've had persistent problems with MTU on the WRT54GX that I never had with my WRT54G.

    The client software usual indicates that you have access to the access point and not the internet. The network connection will show signal strength, but that does not indicate you are connected to the access point. I changed the setting for my ppoe connection to keep alive redial period to twenty seconds. My WRT54G keep its connection active all the time, but there is a lag on the WRT54GX.
