Windows XP pro, Linksys Router, broadband wireless IP. Can connect broadband-router-PC. Can not connect directly broadband-PC. Also, connection times out. This is a friend's PC. He was on Hughes Sat. and switched to a wireless being beaming off of a mountain. It comes in on a cat5 to a very small, powered box with two green lights and then to his router from where it goes to his PC. He has an 18% drop via pings and if we connect directly into his PC, it's dead. He can only get a connection if he goes through the router first. Really weird.
