Just to be sure, are you using a wireless router or are you trying to use the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) system in Windows? Because if you're not using a router, go get one. Save yourself a lot of time, effort, and frustration, because ICS is really way more trouble than it's worth. It's not even worth bothering to attempt troubleshooting ICS when the router option is cheap, easy, and you can get a router just about any place that sells electronics.
I have two computers and a printer in a wireless network both computers using XP.
The master which is a Dell Dimension is operating correctly. The slave which is a Dell Inspiron laptop will not connect to the network correctly.
Trying to repair the Wireless Network Connection in "Network Connections" results in a message cannot complete task of correcting IP address,
Can I correct the IP adress manually or is there another solution?
