Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54GS Router (e125894)
I bought a nice new Linksys wireless router, and just went ahead and installed it
on my WinXP pro Dell Vostro 1700. It wanted to install LELA, and I let it, after
it assured me this was a marvelous improvement.
I went home and tried to use my other router and it didn't work, wouldn't go, wanted
me to plug into it and reconnect. This is a pain, and is irresponsible design.
The alternative it offered was to run services.msc, then start the Wireless Zero Configuration
service, THEN go to the advanced settings on wireless network connections AND click
the wireless tab, AND tell it to use Windows to configure the laptop.
But you have to do this EVERY TIME you comeback from hibernate, or restart or whatever.
This is irresponsible design and I'm one pissed0off customer.
I had the same problem with the same router and a new HP pavillion. I had to go through all of the services one by one and turn on anything that was remotlly connected to the wireless dependancies. Sometimes a reg cleaner or one of the many utilities we use to speed up our machines, stops essential services. The only way to make sure you did everything you could, is to go line by line in the services menu, or just turn them all on, to see if that clears it up.I tried everything from bios to drivers, and that did nothing, it ended up being one of the services I restarted. To be honest I really think that once we start using hardware and software from so many different companies, the "bugs" come out. I like linksys, but about a year ago, with a brand new wrt54g, it stopped working after a MSFT update. Also the tcip settings may have been altered. I found this on a forum last time I had the problem, it may help you so I'll post itIn the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog
Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
Reboot the machine.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
