is the r40's access mode right? with xp, it should be under auto or netowork mode, not the ad-hoc mode. just have a look over there by checking its network properties.

seems like different wifi nics have different success rates witht his Linksys - we are trying it out and will probably end up with a Cisco WAP anyways. Thanks for your input but I had all that set correctly.
