    I'm trying to set up a wireless router in my apartment. We have a Linksys Wireless G router, two Linksys wireless G notebook cards and a cable modem. We configured the router with WEP encryption and installed the drivers for the cards on each computer.

    Now, I set up the wireless cards on each computer and put in the correct keys, etc. My computer works fine. It connects to the internet like normal with an excellent connection.

    My roommie's card however, isn't working correctly. We have the same settings for everything under the network options. Her computer proceeds to then connect and then disconnect every 5 seconds. I've tried tweaking a bunch of settings and can't figure out why it does this.

    The only thing I've really noticed is that the IP address when it is connected is all zeros.

    We are both running XP Home, though I have SP2 installed and she does not.
