But how firewalled are they? Consider the story of the new user who selected MAXIMUM PROTECTION (that's right isn't it?) and sure enough their machine could not connect.
As to the cable unplugged, that's proper too. Long explainer would be needed to tell why. Let's just say it's by design and not a bug.
My main computer is running os windows xp which is connected directly to a linksys router and then connected to a modem.
My second computer is also running os windows xp. I'm trying to connect my second computer as wireless using a D-Link. The connection has worked in the past but has always given me problems. Now I can't get it to connect at all.
I'm getting an error on boot up. The error reads "there is a duplicate name on the network",
My wireless connection icon shows that I have a strong connection. When I look at available connections in the control panel I have a wireless connection and a local area connection. I assume I should use the wireless connection, but have tried both.
When I enable the local area connection it tells me that there is a cable unplugged, but there isn't.
Both connections are fire walled. I assume that is correct.
Does anyone have any ideas or suggest on how to correct this problem.
