    I had to nuke and pave my desktop recently, and now I cannot get my wireless adapter to talk to my router. All's well with wired connections.

    It looks like the adapter can connect to the router - I have a good signal and all that, but no traffic. After a few seconds of connecting I get the "Limited or No Connectivity" status.

    It was working fine before the nuke. Not much help from the netgear forums. Using a netgear USB adapter(802.11g), and Dlink router (802.11b). Other machines work fine with the router, so I know it is not a router issue.

    I'm running Win XP Pro w/ SP3.

    Any suggestions?

    thanks!

    Sri.

    hmm... scratch that - I just got it to work. All I did was I removed the adapter's MAC address from the MAC filter list, re-added it, and it seems to work fine now. Wierd.

    Admins - feel free to delete thread.
