    Hello,

    I have
    Router: Linksys WRT54GS V7.50.5
    Wireless card: used to be "Asus 802.11b/g Network Adapter" but after updating driver thru Device Manager (WinXP) it is now "Marvell Libertas 802.11b/g Wireless"


    When I first got the card it was all fine, no problems at all. Couple weeks later it would start loosing connection and then connecting again and again. Now it doesnt connect at all. And if it does is says "Limited or no connectivity". Because of this I had to move my desktop from otherroom to where the router is so I can wire it (works fine). I have to move the PC where it was but when I disconnect the wire I am unable to connect using wireless.

    I tried disabling the wired device so maybe the wireless would have an easier time but nothing.

    Internet connection I am using is Comcast High Speed. With somewhat dynamic IP. WPA Personal for security.

    Please help this has been bugging me for a long time and still cant find the answer to why I cant connect.

    Thanks

    Did it stop working after updating the driver? Sounds like you loaded the wrong driver for the machine.

    If it is an integrated adapter get the latest driver from your PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's web site, not via a Windows update or search.
