have a new acer aspire 1642 with intelpro wireless 2200bg network connection
Using a linksys  wrt54g wireless router setup at present as open system no wep or mac filtering etc
Have problem that have one laptop with dlink wireless card and connects ok
Also my pda has wifi and that connects ok
Using these devices
via ipconfig can ping router and also ping my dns server which is other side of router


When connect acer it reports connects ok and the router provides via its dhcp an ip address etc

Initially I can ping the router but never my dns server
Then after a time cannot ping router

Have read about updating driver for lan card  but as new laptop driver version is 9.0.3.9


Any help appreciated
