    I use a Net Gear WGT634U 108 Mbps Router to connect my Notebook computer to
    the internet and to my Desktop computer. My Notebook PC is a Gateway MX8734
    and has an internal Intel® PRO/100VE Network adapter. The Desktop is hard
    wired to the Router. Both Computers are running Vista Home Premium Operating
    Systems. I recently tried to enable the WPA and then the WEP security to this
    Router. I am not knowledgeable about this stuff, but I was successful in
    enabling the security using both the WEP or the WPA security. I do however
    run into a problem that I do not have when these securities are not enabled.

    When I boot up my Notebook from the off mode my Notebook connects to the
    Router automatically and works properly. Whenever my Notebook goes into a
    power saving mode and I wake it up to work on it again my connection does not
    work. When I bring up the “Connect to a network†window the message next to
    my Network name says: “Connected with limited accessâ€, but I cannot access
    anything. When everything is working properly the message simply says:
    “Connectedâ€. To get everything working again I have to disconnect the
    Notebook connection and reconnect it again. After I do this everything works
    again until the next time my Notebook goes into any power saving mode. I
    first tried using the WPA security and now I am trying the WEP security and I
    have the same problem with both. I do have the boxes checked to remember the
    pass code and to connect automatically. I also use the Wireless Access List
    for security.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? I would like to keep my
    connection secure as possible, but this is a little annoying to have to deal
    with every time I go back on my Notebook computer because I am off and on it
    al day and night. Any help and suggestions will be deeply appreciated.

    Thank you, James
