Operating System: Windows XP Professional
Wireless Router: NetGear WGR614 version 6

My computer detects the wireless network and says it connects, but still says "not connected."  The connection [even though it says not connected] only lasts a few minutes then I can't connect back.  The wireless network worked fine and I do not know what I did wrong.  At first I thought it was my Windows firewall but I disabled that and it still isn't working.  Any help or comments are greatly appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to MyTechSupport.ca

How long has the wireless network worked before your issue? Have you installed any new hardware/software?

Download WinsockFix and unzip it. Then double-click on it to run it. Reboot and try to connect.

Are you using Windows Wireless configuration or are you using Netgears monitor?

Sometimes WEP gets wepped up. try to disable wep and connect and/or basically set everything back to default and try to connect.

Recycle router.
Check:
XP Firewall.
MAC filtering.

You can try to connect with Wireless Zero Configuation instead of Linksys software.

Check the routers log to see if it is actually connected.

some things to try and what I seen from my WRT54g.
Am I rambling....I need to go to sleep
