    Until yesterday I've had 4 laptops working fine wirelessly on my MN-500
    network; now the network doesn't show up on any of them (although it does
    recognize it exists if I try to recreate it). The computer that is attached
    directly works fine. Any help would be appreciated... Thanks

    Have you rebooted everything and power cycled the router? do you
    have connectivity to the Internet or not?

    Yes, I rebooted everything and powercycled the router. I have internet
    access only from the desktop pc that is directly connected (by ethernet) to
    the modem; none of the wireless connections work.

    have you logged into the base station and confirmed that the
    wireless is on and broadcasting? if you can't see the network in the
    list of available networks, you need to check the base station. You
    may want to consider replacing the MN-500. It is old, WEP only (puts
    you at risk) and 802.11b only).
