    I have a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router, model WRT54G. I have a PC and a Mac hard-wired to the router, with a desktop and laptop PC wirelessly connected. Until this week, all has been well.

    My hard-wired computers are having no issues. My wireless laptop PC is doing fine as well.

    My wireless desktop PC will not connect through the router. The odd bit is that it will connect to the router. I can ping it and even get to the router's web interface to configure it from the wireless desktop. I don't understand what is happening, any tips of suggestions? I can't connect to anything past the router; Internet, other computers' shared resources...

    Try giving it a static IP within the range of your network. sounds crazy but I had the same problem and that solved it for me. It would see my wireless and connect but i couldnt do anything with it. It would ping and see the router too.
