    I have cable internet connected to a Netgear WGR614v5 wireless router. On my laptop (W98se), I have a Linksys wireless USB Network Adapter (802.11b) plugged into a USB port. This device has worked fine for a year or so, and can pick up the neighbour's internet. But although it finds the Netgear's signal - it will not connect to the internet with it. The internet connection is fine though - as confirmed by the computer hard wired to the Netgear router. PLEASE don't tell me that the Netgear router and Linksys adapter are incompatible!
