    I can surf the net fine on my other computers connected through my WRT54G, but I cant acquire a network address when trying to connect to the network with my laptop.
    When it is trying to connect there is activity of sending and receiving packets.
    WRT54G V3.03.6
    with default settings on all the advanced wireless settings

    Which wireless NIC or minicard do you have in your laptop. If it is a Intel 2200BG, they have had problems. Do you have any type of encryption. The defalt setting give you none. If you have some wireless encryption do not use paraphase key generators, since the keys vary from manufacturers. Use hexadecimal keys, of the same length. since Linksys only uses hexidecimal keys. No MAC address filtering, set the same channel and SSID.
