EDIT: I should note that my router model is WRK54G. The NIC model is WPC54G.
I recently bought two Linksys 802.1g Wireless NICs and a Linksys 802.1g Wireless Router for my simple home network, and I am having difficulties. According to the manual and packaging, this network should be compliant with 802.1b standards, because of auto sensing/detecting technology, but my router, if I set it up manually, does not seem to receive any packets from my ISP through the modem. The connection from computer to router seems to work fine. If I put in my wired Acer NIC card after unplugging the wireless Linksys NIC, and set up my router using the automated install on the CD that came with the product, the internet connection works fine after that. I ONLY get the problem after resetting the router and setting up the network manually through the web interface. If there are any troubleshooting steps I could take, please let me know. Thank you very much.
