    Ok guys once again I need some help. I have a Linksys WRT54G router that sends a signal to my laptop (Toshiba satellite w/ windoze xp/mepis) and my wife's desktop (XP only). Our router and modem got unplugged tonight and I had to reset the router. Now when I try to connect lt will connect for about a minute or two, then disconnect and re-connect. It does this over and over. I am also using 128 bit wep encryption.

    What gives? I have never had this problem before. Anyone have any suggestions to get it connect and stay that way?

    If you turn off encryption, does it still do it? WEP on these things seems finicky at best. I just bought the same unit but with Speedbooster (or whatever--$10 cheaper than the standard G after rebate) and had some funky crap going on once I enabled WEP. I finally got it to work but I cannot say how.
