Hello people, this is my equipment...
A dektop PC with XP Pro.
A laptop with XP Home edition.
Linksys WRK54G router.
Linksys WPC54G PCMCIA network adapter.
I have managed to get internet on the desktop PC via a network cable running from the PC to a hub on the router, and another cable from the router to the modem.
Now I am trying to get a wireless internet connection from the laptop using the PCMCIA adapter. This is where I have had problems literally all day. From the laptop I can see the 'linksys' wireless network and have the option to connect to it, but the connection never gets established.
I have tried resetting the router disabling all security, restarting the WZC service, updating the driver and so on. Nothing seems to work.
I must be missing something as I've never done this before and everything I know I have learnt today. Can anybody help?
