Netgear CG814WG and Linux

Over the past few months I've switched between a few different cable modems trying to fix an internet connectivity problem (which, coinidentally, ended up being Charter's fault) and I have gone through one or two Linksys BEFCMU10 modems and a Netgear CG814WG modem/router unit.  At about the same time that I started using the Netgear CG814WG, however, my linux machines stopped connecting to the router.  I am running two dual-boot XP/Fedora Core machines and neither can ping the router.  Both can connect when booted into Windows XP, though.  Does anyone know if there are compatibility issues between the Netgear CG814WG and Linux?

IP is IP weather it is from windows or linux does not matter.... I would check your IP settings especially under the linux side do a netstat -an and look for the default gateway and look at the /etc/resolv.conf file make sure the nameservers in there are correct.

Thanks

It seems that it's an IRQ error.  Manually setting what channel it's on isn't doing the job, though.  Any suggestions?

you may want to try moving PCI slots but I am not sure that will help a lot... sounds more like a hardware issue than a networking issue then.

Thanks
