Wireless Problem!

  Legslip 19:37 16 Oct 2005

Have installed a wireless router (Linksys_ and can connect OK to the net from the main PC(Win XP, connected via a cable to the router) but cannot get on the net from the remote PC(Win ME) using a Belkin Internal Card. The remote PC is communicating to the router but will not connect to the net. Id it because it is using ME perhaps?

Have you added the MAC address of the WinME machine to your allowed list on the router? Do winipcfg.exe from the command prompt and see if you have an IP address, 2 DNS addresses etc, and see if the router sees the ME PC and has assigned it the same IP address. It shouldn't make any difference what version of Windows you use, the main things to consider are making sure it's up to date with Microsoft patches, and disable any firewall software while troubleshooting connection issues.
