My Dell running xp pro sp2 takes anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour to finally recognize the wireless signal coming from my belkin wireless g router. All my other machines recognize it instantly. What could be the problem? I've installed the latest drivers for the trendnet card, with no luck.

Good luck,
