Yeah, this sounds like the laptop's problem.

The first thing I would try is see if you can establish an internet connection through a wired connection. Just plug your laptop directly into your router and disable your wireless adapter.

Let me know if you need any help disabling your wireless adapter.

I suspect your wireless adaptor in or attached to your laptop is giving you the issue.

I can't why your old XP laptop won't connect wirelessly. Windows 7 doesn't do anything to the router to cause this to happen.

In any event, you would be far better served to use the newer Tomato firmware for your WRT54GS router. This was released in 09 and makes your router more compatible with Windows 7. It also makes the wireless networking on your older router work much better.

I installed windows 7 32-bit RC on my PC yesterday and all is fine, except for my connection. Whenever I try to connect to my Wireless network, it says there is 'limited or no connectivity'. All my WEP settings are correct and the diagnostic said that the IP Config was wrong. What to do?

Limited Connectivity
100% of the time, I have limited connectivity for my wireless network. I have a Netgear WG311v3 wireless card in my Dell E510 desktop and a Netgear WGR614v6 router. I get a perfect connection with Windows XP but the limited connectivity in windows 7. Any Suggestion?
