linksys wireless router problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless (More info?)

I have a linksys wireless router connected to a cable modem. When I connect a PC equipped with Windows XP home addition using an ethernet cable, I can reach the internet.
When I disconnect my ethernet cable and install a PCMCIA (Proxim) wireless card or an external USB (D-Link DWL-122) wireless USB adapter I cannot reach the internet. I have WEP turned off, I do obtain a valid IP address using DHCP and do not have any MAC filtering turned on.

Any help is appreciated.

    John,

    Do the D-Link or Proxim drivers provide any diagnostic?

    Please provide ipconfig information for the computer, with the ethernet cable
    and then with a wireless device enabled.
    Start - Run - "cmd". Type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" into the command
    window - Open c:\ipconfig.txt in Notepad, copy and paste into your next post.

    Please provide static route tables for the computer, with the ethernet cable and
    then with a wireless device enabled.
    Start - Run - "cmd". Type "route print >c:\route.txt" into the command window -
    Open c:\route.txt in Notepad, copy and paste into your next post.

    With the wireless device enabled:
    1) Ping www.yahoo.com.
    2) Ping 66.94.230.33.
    Report error messages.

    Cheers,
    Chuck

    John,

    Right now, you have 2 network devices defined - a 3Com wired card, and an
    Orinoco wireless card. Did you try connecting with the Orinoco?

    Please describe how you install and activate the D-Link or the Proxim. What
    devices are currently listed in Device Manager - Network adapters?

    Can you connect to the router, and look at the DHCP address assignment table?

    Cheers,
    Chuck
