But try this. Go to the router and reset it to the factory settings. Change the SSID to somehthing NEW and SIMPLE. Now change it to WPA/WPA2 PSK and try again. DO NOT make any other changes to the router.
This will knock off all other machines and block the usual hijackers.
I'm using an Apple TimeCapsule as a wireless base station. There was a recent firmware upgrade and now my XP laptop (compaq X1030 with Buffalo Wireless G PCMIA card) cannot maintain a connection, but all my other printers and computers have no problem. I've got a Roku, Mac Laptop, Kodak Wireless Printer all holding a signal. The signal strength to the XP is good, but I keep getting this looping connect-discconnect:
Dec 21 19:28:10 Severity:5 Disassociated with station 00:xxx:bc:d9:3c
Dec 21 19:28:10 Severity:5 Associated with station 00:xxx:bc:d9:3c
Dec 21 19:28:14 Severity:5 Deauthenticating with station 00:xxx:bc:d9:3c (reserved 2).
Any ideas? The XP can't seem to receive an IP address.... WPA/WPA2 Personal Channel automatic...
