I just installed an Airlink wireless card in an old Win 98se laptop. When the laptop starts, there is no connection to the router (Linksys WRT54G). I have no Internet access and the laptop cannot see the other two PCs on the network. However, if I run the WLAN utility program that came with the card, after a couple of seconds the connection is established and everything works fine until the next reboot. Running the utility should not be needed before getting a connection, right?
