wireless woes

  PhiltheFragger 22:35 18 Feb 2004

Have an existing 2 computer cabled network using a Mentor 4 port ADSL router which works fine, sharing a broadband connection etc.IP set up is to 5

System 1 is a XP system, System2 is win 98SE
both are reasonable spec.

I have a third puter in another part of the house which I want to add to the network using a wireless connection,this is also win 98se.

I have installed a wireless pci card into puter and have plugged a wireless access point into the router. Here is the problem.

Straight out of the box, the 3rd puter can use broadband no problem, but it cant see the rest of the network

at this point, the pci card is assigning IP addresses automatically . If you assign it a specific ip ie Then it can see the whole of the network but cannot access the internet.

Also am unable to link to the Wireless Access point to configure it although I can access the router control from wireless puter.

Any ideas out there chaps

I forgot to mention, all firewalls have got all the possible IP ranges in them. Have also tried it without firewalls but lost my bottle.
