Try this site: click here. It worked for me with two computers on Me and one XP - with wireless network adapters.

have looked at both suggestions but i am more confused, let me explain that i have a satellite internet connection and when i had ME on both machines it worked ok.

1. Disable any firewalls

2. Run the network setup wizard on the PC that has the satellite connection (ideally the XP PC)

3. Make the floppy that is offered at the end of the wizard.

4. Run the floppy on the second PC

5. Check that both PCs 'see' each other.

6. Reinstall any 'satellite specific' software that you may need

7. Reinstall any firewall that you feel you need

8. Check both PCs still see each other

9. Go surf :)
