I just received a new Speedstream 6520 dsl modem which has a wireless g router built in.

My laptop has had no problems with this new connection.

My pc has a dlink usb wireless g network adapter that was working fine with my old modem, router combination.

Now, no matter what I do, the pc connects and disconnects repeatedly to the modem - about every 45 seconds.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm kinda having the same problems and the tech support guys are saying that the problem is not with the hardware or the software of the components? Did you ever figure out what to do about it?

Try copying your MAC address from your working computer to the non working computer. Some ISP's allow you to build your home network with routers but it requires all the MAC address's to match. First you need to look up the MAC address on the computer connected to the internet. Here is a tutorial MAC Adress. Once you know the MAC address of the connected computer you can copy it to the other computers on the net work. This Tutorial Will tell you how to change it. Save the changes and reboot. Go back into IPCONFIG /ALL and check the address to make sure they match. This should resolve your problem.

Edit: spelling
