The WL-138g card in my tower (xp sp2) connects at 54mbps then after obtaining an address, throttles down to 18Mbps. Latest drivers are installed and I extensively tried various antenna positions both on the card, and on the router (a WL-700ge). Behavior the same via the windows or Asus interfaces and both interfaces claimed an "excellent" signal strength. My laptop running a belkin card maintains a strong 54mbps connection from the exact location. I'm looking into the advanced driver settings but haven't had any luck yet. Suggestions? Thanks.

Same **** here .... All I am finding all over the internet is people complaining about this card. WTF how Asus could make such a pice of **** ??? My card sometimes connects to the router sometimes doesn't and when it does the speed it terrible really. Did almost everything with it so far nothing helped. I wonder if I can take it back and ask for money back.
I have just set up a broadband connection for some neighbours using the Thomson router and had similar problems.
Leave the computer on, power down the router, leave it for a few seconds and power it up again. It worked for me.
But it seems that we have this problem every time i,e if the router is on and you switch on the computer it won't connect, but if the computer is on and you switch on the router everything works as it should. I haven't got to the bottom of this yet.
Remove the card and install in a different pci slot,it may be a problem with the way windows is giving the pci slot the startup request.
Just also double check that the correct driver is being recognised and not a windows generic driver.
Look in device manager on hardware tab and see if there is a 'x' or an exclamation mark (!) against the wireless card.
Well since ur second computer goes online with wireless connection, so it seems the problem with your first computer.The only thing that you have to do is to update your wireless card drivers.
1. Restart your computer in safe mode with networking mode.
2. Uninstall the wireless card.
3. Restart the computer and install the card again.
This will definitely resolve your problem.
