    Hi TSG,

    I have a Sony Vaio laptop (WinXP) with B/G wireless integrated card connecting to a 8011/B Netgear DG824M AP/Firewall/Router acting as a DHCP (or is it DCHP?). I have connected to the router and other desktops/laptops on my wireless home network in the past.

    But - the connection intially shows up as "Excellent" but then is lost and I am unable to reconnect. I have researched this problem on the net and have changed battery power saving setting, installed the latest Intel drivers, removed MS XP SP1 WAP patches that may have caused a problem and released & renewed the IP address many times but to no avail.

    My Intel ProSET software says that the wired connection has an IP address of the 'correct' 192.168.0.2 (even though it is unplugged) but the wireless card has 0.0.0.0 (cannot renew its IP address). Have these adapters gotten confused or are there some other things I can try to sustain a connection?

    many thanks in advance.
