    I have a Linksys WRT54G (July 2003 Firmware date) router and run one laptop and one desktop wireless. Both cards are Linksys 54/G cards... Have never had one problem with the laptop.

    The desktop sometimes does not recognize the existence of the network immediately, and a restart is necessary... Other times after a few minutes it will recognize the network... I don't understand. It's not a distance issue since I can boot up the laptop right next to the desktop and it detects the network just fine.

    The desktop runs XP home (preloaded)... That is the ONLY variable I can isolate in this situation...

    Linksys technical support = teh suck.
