I have a Microsoft MN510 wireless card with MN500 base station. Whether I use
the network wizard or do so manually, I cannot connect to the Internet with
either my laptop or second desktop.

It indicates that I am connected to the network but NOT to the Internet.

Jeff --

I just spent 9 hours on various "live chats" and technical services calls
with Linksys with what MAY be the same problem. We finally figured out that
if I remove ALL encryption, the thing would connect. I came into this
forum to see if I can find out why this is the case, and what to do about
it. In any case, my problem -- any perhaps yours -- was an encryption
problem.

Do I remove the encryption on the router, or on the "client" side?

The live chat tech suggested that I remove it at the router end -- and that
is what I did. On the client end the card detected the router as
"non-secure" which is, of course, appropriate.

I've been reading postings in this and other places and what we're
experiencing seems to be a relatively common problem (assuming that we're
experiencing the same problem!!). The disheartening thing is that there
doesn't seem to be an easy solution. I have another thread going in a
non-Microsoft forum that suggests that the problem MAY be the way I'm
implementing WEP. I'll get back to you if that bears fruit.

Jeff --

MAYBE I have an answer to at least my problem -- I'm not sure about yours.
In setting up wireless security, I misread/misunderstood how I was supposed
to generate a key. I was typing in a passphrase and generating a series of
hex keys. Then when I configured the card I was entering the passphrase
rather than one of the hex values. I reread the documentation and I can see
how I interpreted it in the manner in which I did.

Bob,
With your routers manufacturer the "key" process is different. With MS
hardware, the process is automatic. Unless I read documentation wrong, it
appears that it must be a secure connection. Without entering the key, you
can't move forward in the process.

Don't forget, I have Microsoft hardware, which may account for the difference.

Bob, check one thing: in TCP/IP properties, Advanced button, Options
tab, TCP/IP filtering, check that ports/protocols are set to Permit All,
not Permit None. I've run into this with a couple Linksys wireless -b
systems that could not connect.
