Scenario...have desktop connected with dsl...have router installed. Laptop pc working fine, built in network card. Have additonal desktop pc, and have just installed the linksys G adapter. Following directions to a "T". Problem..in beginning did not recognize any available networks. Then it detected one, started to connect, then failed. When go to the config. page, says cannot connect to access point. I have compared settings on both other pcs. and find nothing out of order. Is there something I am missing? I actually had laptop directly next to desktop and was recieving signal. Any suggestions? Thank you

Start, run, type cmd and hit enter, type ipconfig /all
then hit enter.....right click to copy and come back and paste the info for both machines.

well, I uninstalled, physically removed the network card, ran disc, reinstalled card, and it works........geesh. Did it correctly the first time......well, obviously didn't, but don't know what I did differently, followed the same instructions. It is 94 degrees here so maybe pc doesn't like the heat any more than I do........thank you anyway........
