You could be having conflict between the Linksys wireless service that is installed and the Windows XP wireless zero configuration utility.

Go to My Computer/Manage/Services/Services and Applications and look for the Linksys service.  Disable it.

Also use the Startup Control Panel (www.mlin.net) to see if the Linksys service program is being started.  You can temporarily disable it with this software.  It's a nice overall xp utility!

The times I have installed the Linksys devices, I've removed the Linksys from the startup and disabled the Linksys service and just used the Windows XP wireless zero configuration.  I think (can't confirm) that Linksys includes it because a year or so ago the XP wireless configuration didn't work that well, but seems to now.

Check the XP Services and make sure one called Linksys something or WRT... something isn't there.

A lot of wireless problems and issues were resolved and fixed by SP2.  I remember that often wireless just wouldn't work with SP1 and after SP2, the problems went away.  (I just assumed everyone is at SP2 level, so I learned something too.)

Glad to hear a happy ending!
