I have just installed a Belkin 802.11g pcmcia card on my notebook and am attempting to connect to my D-Link DWL-2000AP+ access point in order to join my WLAN. The card recognises the network (I disabled WEP security to make it easier) however when I click connect it does nothing and continues to say "Wireless Connection Unavailable". Every other computer on the network (there are 3) is a desktop and they are all running D-Link wireless PCI cards. All IP addresses are automatically handed out. Is it a compatibility issue? What need I do to fix it?
Cheers

Do you maybe have the access point set to do MAC address filtering, or to limit the number of computers connecting?
