Windows 2000 and wireless adapter

by b33faroni / August 13, 2007 12:33 PM PDT

I have just bought a Buffalo wireless g keychain adapter for my father's Windows 2000 sony vaio. I have a wireless router connected to a wireless modem (wireless philadelphia) that my mac laptop is connected to and my fathers XP dell machine is connected to with the same Buffalo keychain adapter. The XP machine is connected to the network without any problems of course because XP has its own wireless client/program or whatnot. I installed the buffalo client manager onto the 2000 machine and it connects fine but when I open up IE or AOL it will not recognize a connection. Any suggestions? Thanks
