    I have three computers on my network at home. I just upgraded to 802.11g. One computer is wired, and one computer is connected just fine to the network and internet using the 802.11g connection. The problem is that the computer that is running WIN 98SE and using a 802.11b network adapter can see the network conneciton but it cannot connect to it or to the internet. My router is netgear and the 802.11g adapter is also netgear but my 802.11b adapter is iBlitz. Also the wired computer and the 802.11g computers are running WINXP. I am not sure what the problem is because is looks as if it is connected to the network because the four little green bars are lit up and it says that the signal strength is 100%. Please help if you can!! I have been here before and found this site to be very helpful. Thanks

    Have you set the router to dual (802.11b and 802.11g) mode?

    You haven't got encryption on in the router and forgotten to set the key in the 802.11b adaptor?

    You haven't got MAC address access control switched on in the router and forgotten to add the MAC address of the 802.11b PC to the permitted list in the router?
