Running XP Pro SP2, Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless router.
Other laptops run wireless/cable, but my own laptop can only connect through cable
When I try to go wireless, then in order to get an IP from DHCP on the router, I first have to establish a "bridge" between the lan-connection and the wireless-connection in WinXP, then delete the bridge - then I get an IP from the router - and I can access the internet. When restarting the laptop I get the same problem again; no assigned IP.
Laptop: Toshiba Satellite A60 with Atheros AR5004G wireless adapter
On cable - no problems Other laptops no problems with wireless WEP og MAC-filtering is checked 100% - and they have to be correct because I can get access doing the "bridge-trick" Tried to let WinXP control the network connections - and afterwards let the adapter utility control the network connections - no success in either case
So - my own conclusion is something is wrong i WinXP - but what???
