Have Intel 2200BG Pro Wireless card and am sitting right next to Netgear router. Kwifimanager is telling me correct connection speed 55MBits, correclty connected to network, access pont and frequency channel. But, the range scale is blank. 

Every so often all the bars light up green but then dissappear as fast as they came.

Windooze XP has no problem connection.

>From within networ-admin, ESSIS and WEP keys are all set up correclty and configuration is DHCP.

Can anyone help?
