Linksys WRT54G Wireless Broadband Router - the XP and Mac Drama!

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Patrick at PHD, Jun 14, 2005.

  1. Hi there,
    I¹d appreciate any help.

    I recently bought a Wireless Broadband Router made by Linksys. I was told it
    would work with Windows XP (Home), but probably not with my Mac.

    I followed instructions, and set it all up. Amazingly, it works seamlessly
    (and without configuration) with my Mac, but not with the PC. I spent two
    hours on to Linksys support, checking and confirming the configuration of
    both the unit and the PC. Now, it picks up the wireless connection for a
    short while (maybe 5 minutes) and then drops it. I have tried it with the
    firewall on and the firewall off, but it¹s the same.

    My Windows XP machine works without any problems at all on other wireless
    connections (e.g. In coffee stores or train stations).

    Has anyone had a similar problem? I¹d really appreciate some help!!

    Kind Regards,
    Patrick
