I have set up tons of home networks before, but this one is killing me.

I have windows XP on a laptop and on the desktop. The desktop has a dsl modem, with a wireless router. The laptop has a wireless card.

The laptop will send packets, but not receive any. There are no firewalls activated. The wireless key is correct. It recognizes the wireless connection, but does not receive anything.

What's wrong!
