    I have a Microsoft MN510 wireless card with MN500 base station. Whether I use
    the network wizard or do so manually, I cannot connect to the Internet with
    either my laptop or second desktop.

    It indicates that I am connected to the network but NOT to the Internet.

    Jeff --

    I just spent 9 hours on various "live chats" and technical services calls
    with Linksys with what MAY be the same problem. We finally figured out that
    if I remove ALL encryption, the thing would connect. I came into this
    forum to see if I can find out why this is the case, and what to do about
    it. In any case, my problem -- any perhaps yours -- was an encryption

    Do I remove the encryption on the router, or on the "client" side?

    The live chat tech suggested that I remove it at the router end -- and that
    is what I did. On the client end the card detected the router as
    "non-secure" which is, of course, appropriate.

    I've been reading postings in this and other places and what we're
    experiencing seems to be a relatively common problem (assuming that we're
    experiencing the same problem!!). The disheartening thing is that there
    doesn't seem to be an easy solution. I have another thread going in a
    non-Microsoft forum that suggests that the problem MAY be the way I'm
    implementing WEP. I'll get back to you if that bears fruit.

    MAYBE I have an answer to at least my problem -- I'm not sure about yours.
    In setting up wireless security, I misread/misunderstood how I was supposed
    to generate a key. I was typing in a passphrase and generating a series of
    hex keys. Then when I configured the card I was entering the passphrase
    rather than one of the hex values. I reread the documentation and I can see
    how I interpreted it in the manner in which I did.

    With your routers manufacturer the "key" process is different. With MS
    hardware, the process is automatic. Unless I read documentation wrong, it
    appears that it must be a secure connection. Without entering the key, you
    can't move forward in the process.

    Don't forget, I have Microsoft hardware, which may account for the difference.

    Bob, check one thing: in TCP/IP properties, Advanced button, Options
    tab, TCP/IP filtering, check that ports/protocols are set to Permit All,
    not Permit None. I've run into this with a couple Linksys wireless -b
    systems that could not connect.
