    I have a Netgear MA814v2 802.11b Router and am hooked
    up to a MN-520 MS Wireless Adaptor on my laptop. It worked
    fine for about 6 months but having issues for past 2
    weeks. Adaptor can see Router but cannot connect to it.
    WEP is not enabled. I have tried uninstalling and
    reinstalling but it just wont connect. Sometimes it cannot
    see the router eventhough sitting next to each other.

    Any Ideas.

    I have a couple off suggestions from other sites. mostly upgrade the router
    firmware which I will try this week.

    Also a hint I got.
    "Go to the Network properties and look for the wireless
    TCP/IP conncetion. If it's not there, it did not

    Otherwise, check the settings. Make sure the SSID,
    channel, WEP key, and WEP key length match those on the
    router. Check also the Workgroup name -- it needs to
    match the workgroup on the other computer.

    The best way is typically to turn off WEP, setup and test
    everything, and then add WEP.

    Thanks 4 the advice, I have downloaded the firmware already and also tried to
    get it to work with WEP disabled, seems like I've had all the same advice as
    you with no joy. The other tip I had today was try switching channels use
    either 1 or 6 and also re-name SSID I've tried both of these and still the
    wireless don't work so I've still working with the wire and even more
    frustrated. If I manage to fix mine, I'll let you know!! Good Luck
