I've had my MS wireless"G" kit set up for a few weeks now
and I encountering two problems. The first is when my
wife and I are both working from our wireless laptops we
have a problem with the wireless connection intermitantly
going unavailable. I'm using this system to run a home
office and the wireless connection is flawless all day
with one machine connected but is almost useless when 2
machines are trying to use it.
My second problem is since switching to the MS wireless G
router from a D-link router and Cisco Aironet wireless
access point my HP pavilion a230n that I have connected
with cat5 to function as a print server losses it's net
work settings every time I reboot the system. It can't
find the correct ip address unless I run the Windows
network setup utility each time I start my machine, it
works fine after that. All my machines are running
Windows XP home, and "Norton System Works", all software
is up to date and the router is connected to a motorola
cable modem.

I believe the problem with the HP may be with Norton and
the fact that MS networking gear works on a different
subnet. Norton it's probably configured for the earlier
network that was working on the 192.168.1.x subnet. MS
uses the 192.168.2.x subnet. You may try to reconfigure
either the MN700 to use the 192.168.1.x subnet (under LAN
on the MN700 configuration pages) or Norton. Assigning a
static IP to the HP may also solve the problem (e.g.
192.168.2.254, mask 255.255.255.0, DNS/gateway
192.168.2.1)

For the wireless networks try setting them to
infrastructure mode only (on the properties of each
computer card)
