Do you mean you have a Vista computer downstairs, and an XP upstairs?

And you want to add wireless to the XP machine?

If yes - is the XP system just to connect with a wireless router near the Vista system?

Or what?

To add wireless to a system, you need a wireless card, a USB wireless stick, or a USB wireless adapter.

Let us know a tad more and someone might advise you better.

Sorry, but I don't understand your question. Do you mean you are trying to connect an XP computer to a Vista computer via Wireless?

Come on - please help us out a bit - we don't know what you've got where properly - try to be a bit more explicit so we don't have to keep guessing.

Describe you whole set up in a bit more detail - and what's missing out of it, what you can do and can't do right now - and you will get more help.

"set the d link up to the vista machine"

You would normally plug a wireless access point into the router.
