acer wireless not connecting

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

Go into your wireless network connections properties and under "this connection uses the following items make sure there is only *Client for ms. networks & *File and Printer sharing & *Internet Protocol TCP/IP no other protocols should be listed as they try talking at same time as TCP/IP is and no one can hear a thing and you don't find your connection. If any other stuff in this box just highlight it and then click ununstall.

then click on your wireless device tab and at bottom click on the Advanced button and be sure you have the correct type of Wireless network chosen usually would be the middle one the "Infastructure"
This is what I find to be wrong most of the time and then they are able to get on and dont get booted off or have a slow connection.
Hope this helps ya if not I to would have to say go get a different device try one of the Belkin USB devices that have an extra usb and cord that you can plug in and then set it where ever you want to get the best reception.
Good Luck
