    this wireless adapter worked great for a year on this desktop with ME,
    upgraded desktop to XP this week (UTTER HELL BY THE WAY....)...now I cannot
    get an internet connection on this desktop...it wavers between great signal
    (but still no internet) and no signal...I have spent 6 hours, this after
    having a succesful network running at home for a year,,so I have tried most
    usual tricks...I am out of ideas...

    any advanced ideas would be greatly appreciated...

    Reinstall the card driver. Check with Linksys for a driver update for
    XP. Use Wireless Zero Configuration (Let Windows Manage this
    connection...). You might re-run the connection wizard - it might make
    a new connection, but you can remove any duplicates from Device
    Manager/View Menu/View Hidden Devices. If you have a router, do not use
    the Windows Firewall, disable it. How much wattage is your power
    supply? Is it adequate? Is it stable?

    ....additionally, do broadcast the network SSID. If not broadcast, some
    receivers will have difficulty with signal.
