    I just installed an Airlink wireless card in an old Win 98se laptop. When
    the laptop starts, there is no connection to the router (Linksys WRT54G). I
    have no Internet access and the laptop cannot see the other two PCs on the
    network. However, if I run the WLAN utility program that came with the card,
    after a couple of seconds the connection is established and I'm fine until
    the next reboot. Running the utility should not be needed before getting a
    connection, right?

    Thanks
