Can send packets, but not receive packets

[ Edited ]
Running Windows XP, my Internet was working fine and then stopped working. It still shows that I am connected to the Wireless Network and shows that packets are being sent, but not received. Will work directly from the cable, but not wireless. Tested Wifi card on other computer, that works, Internet is working on other computer wirelessly.
Any options?
Using Wireless-G Notebook Adapter with SpeedBooster WPC54GS

Re: Can send packets, but not receive packets

What is the router model number and version? You may find the model number underneath the router itself on one of the stickers.
 
Anyway, if you are plugged in to the router:
1) open up internet explorer and go to 192.168.1.1
2) username: just leave it blank password: admin
3) go to the wireless tab:
You may change the ff:
SSID - this is the name of your network
Channel - signal of the router (suggested value is 11)
----> save settings after you have done the necessary changes
4) go the wireless security (found on the subtab)
set-up security:
- suggested mode is WPA Personal
 
If your router is a WRT54G v5-v6, go to the status page:
- check the firmware version, if the firmware version belong to any of the ff. below then download and upgrade the firmware.
► 1.00.1
► 1.00.4
► 1.00.6
► 1.00.7
► 1.00.9

Thanks a bunch for replying. We figured it out. Not sure what happened, but we removed the preferred networks and then added them again and it worked.
