that running the wireless hardware software works best. My IBM ThinkPad has an Intel wireless mini-PCI card (internal) and has its own software. I set up my connection using that software and not the Windows wireless wizard. Also, I only use WEP.
There are 10 types of people who understand binary; those that do and those that don't.

I have a desktop connected to a Netgear WGR614 router, with a Sony laptop with wireless card. I set up the network and my desktop could see the laptop and I could transfer a file from laptop to desktop with no problem. The laptop had internet connection but could not access desktop pc. I ran the wireless network setup wizard in Control panel but all this did was to create a second version of my original network. I deleted this to get back to my original network (which has the same name as the desktop network)but now I can't even get internet access. It tells me that I am connected but it can't find a network address. I did set the router up with WPA/PSK encryption and am now advised that it is easier with WEP encryption. I have been told that the setup wizard can cause problems and that I need to go back to default settings on router and laptop and start again. Is there an easier way?
