Which network can you find?

What router are you using?

How many other pcs are on the network?

How far from the router are you?

Please help us to help you by giving us some more information.

If you set up the router, did you set MAC address filtering? WEP encryption?

Did you set the DHCP server to serve enough addresses?

Is there a WPA password setup on the router.

If wpa password set up on the router then you need to set wpa on new computer with the same password and dissable wep

If you are using XP Home, the maximum number of pcs you can network is 5 - XP Pro allows 10.
