I've had this problem too and have solved it now that I have a new router.  
(Exactly what went wrong I don't know ...)

Anyway, before you go out and buy a new router, I think the Broadcom thing is 
not very useable for us.  Check to see what is managing your wireless by going 
into your systray.  If it's Intel PROSet/wireless then you may change this by 
right clicking and select Windows to manage your wireless.  (I was once advised 
not to do this but actually I found that having played about a bit and changed 
over to Windows, then back again to Intel, I've ended up with a stable wireless 

I hope this might help a bit.  Incidentally, what router are you using?

Come back if you think I might be able to help further ... though I'm off out 
now for most of the day ...

  Subject: [access-uk] Connecting to a router

  I have 2 Dell Inspiron laptops which recently I've tried to connect to my 
Lynxis router. They connect and even get through using the password key, but on 
the Wireless icon in Network Connections in Control Panel it says I am 
connected with limited or no connectivity. I've removed firewalls and rely on 
the router's firewall. I've gone through the setting and can see nothing 
obvious. The strange thing is that I've got other machines connecting perfectly 
well wirelessly and even my N95 does so without trouble.
  I'm wondering if I should be using the Windows Wireless control or perhaps 
there's another way. Strange that both Dell machines have the same problem. 
They seem to use a Broadcom program.
  Has anyone any ideas?
