    Hello all.

    While troubleshooting a friend's network, I can't get a wireless NIC
    to work. Here are the stats on the network:

    AT&T DSL

    Linksys Wireless G 2.4 GHz router model WRT54G

    Computer A (one network card):
    - Intel (R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection

    Computer B (two network cards):
    - Intel (R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
    - Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter

    Computer B, a Dell desktop running Windows XP, is where the problem
    lies. The wireless NIC shows up (in Control Panel...Network
    Connections) as connected just fine, but I can't ping the (default
    gateway IP address) router successfully. And of course no internet

    The (wired) Intel NIC is disabled. I've tried enabling it and it makes
    things worse.
    The XP firewall is turned off, and there's no encryption enabled on
    the wireless NIC.
    I've tried both manual IP settings, and DHCP.
    I've tried repair, and disable then enable of the wireless NIC.
    I've powered the router down for a few minutes, then powered it back
    No luck.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
