Our main PC runs Windows Vista and is wired through our Belkin Wireless G Router. Our secondary PC runs Windows XP sp2 and is "connected" wirelessly via the Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO USB Network Adapter.
The instruction manual explicity dictated that we were not to use the pre-install software on the included disc, as it was created before Windows Vista had officially been released.
When I originally hooked everything up, things seemed to be running smoothly. Since then, I have not been able to sustain a connection for more than a few seconds. The Windows XP box shows that the connection has excellent reception, yet nothing Internet-using is able to be pulled up on the XP machine.
I looked at a few articles, and I tried changing some of the networking settings on the Vista machine to "automatic" instead of "manual," but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference. Is there anything I can do to get this network actually working, short of wiring the darn thing?
I just got back from navigating the Belkin website, and I can't find the area where I would download updates.
I ran the software for the XP machine, but I did nothing for the Vista machine, simply because the instructions told me not to do so. Is there something I should do to the Vista machine that I haven't already done? And where do I find the updates for the XP machine?
