<_< I am working with a new notebook (windows xp professional). It has a built in wireless connection that functions well at a public access point at a local restaurant. I have a linksys wireless home access point that works with other notebooks at all the default settings. However when I use this new computer it makes one connection then will not work after that unless I reset the access point (connected to dsl). Any ideas or suggestions would be most welcome.

Is it a new Intel Centrino based notebook? I've heard about them ocassionally crashing a network when connected. There may be an update available. Have you check Windows update?

Under network settings do you have a wireless bridge connection? If so, I'd delete it. You could also try and run the networking wizard on both computers.
