Well, the problem I have is quite confusing. When I got my laptop, the wireless internet was fine, and connectivity was great. I decided to upgrade from the default Norton firewall and purchased ZoneLab's ZoneAlarm Security Suite. Thats where my problems started. I couldn't connect onto my router, or actually, I could connect, but for some odd reason there was no internet activity. When I looked on the status of my adapter, it was apparently sending packets normally, but it wasn't recieving any/very few, and at a very very slow rate. It worked sometimes, which was a little werid. So I'm not positive it was ZoneAlarm's fault. I did put the settings to "this computer is a user of a gateway", or something like that. Anyways, I uninstalled ZoneAlarm Security Suite for an easier firewall. I decided to revert to McAfee's AOI center. I still seem to have that problem with my specific router. The router is a 802.11g. Another werid thing is I can connect with my neighbor's netgear router with no problem at all, which is a 802.11b. I've had no problems with that network, but I'd rather use mine :whistling: Also, I've already tried reverting to factory settings, and using an ethernet cable works. I've also looked at device manager, and the adapter seems to be working perfectly.

O/S: Windows XP Pro
Adapter: Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG
Router: Linksys WRT54G
