    I have a Netgear WGR 614 Wireless Router (802.11 b/g) in my home which
    is configured to work in 802.11b as well as 802.11g modes. I can
    connect to this router from my centrino (2200 BG) based laptop and
    access internet without any difficulty. I have another PC with a
    Realtek RT 8180 based PCI wireless card installed (802.11b). Though I
    am able to establish a peer to peer link between the laptop and the PC
    which works perfectly at 11 Mbps, the PC is never able to connect
    through the Netgear Wireless Router in Infrastructure mode. I have
    disabled WEP and checked all the settings, etc but haven't been able to
    find a solution to this problem. Any suggestions ?

    I use just such a card in my PC.

    Download the drivers and the utility and see if that helps

    I mainly use windows 2000 as too many things about XP annoy me.

    When I did use XP with that card I found I could get better results by
    disabling the Wireless Zero Config service (start ->run >services.msc
    or control panel applet) provided by XP and just using the Realtek
    Utility to handle the connection (rtwlan.exe) .

    The Realtek utility handles my connection under Windows 2000 very well
    and supports both WEP and WPA-PSK.

    The Boingo Client is also quite good at handling connections.
