I have three computers in the same network.
One with wired ethernet, (notebook) with 802.11g, desktop with 802.11g. I have a WRT54G linksys router.
The laptop seems to "forget" its settings, and i have to reset, renew, and enable etc..... each time it starts up. It is running windows ME. Recently, both PCs on the WLAN reported "Not able to associate with access point". I did a hard reset on the cable modem and router. The laptop reported "connected to access point, but internet access could not be found", but the internet did work. On the other PC, i noticed that the laptop would only work if the PC had an automatically configured IP address. Now, finally after a lot of guesswork, and a lot of time, both PCs work. But I am sure after I restart the laptop, it will lose connection again...
Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Windows ME!!!!!!!!

Is it safe for me to assume that you are using the connection software provided with the wireless adapter? Just for the sake of asking....are you saving the profile once it is configured and working?

Hey...had to ask! I had the same router and a P3 1GHZ machine that was real flacky too. I ended up installing XP and my problems went away.

Sorry...outside of adapters tech support...don't know what to tell you other than good luck!
