Win ME Wireless?

  Legslip 13:57 12 Nov 2005

Have installed a Linksys ADSL Home Gateway and can connect one PC to it that runs XP. However I cannot get another PC to connect to the net using a Belkin Wireless Network Card. Is it because I am using ME? I cant see any way of setting it up in ME.

The ME PC cannot use WPA encryption,other than that there's no reason why it shouldn't connect thru the router.

Can you advise on how to set up the connection then? Would appreciate some help.

Got the wireless network card communicating OK with the router now, but how do I set up Internet Explorer to conect to the net?

To access the net you go to control panel/Internet Options/Connections tab/LAN Settings/Untick the box,and also select Never Dial a Connection from the Connections tab.I've probably missed something,but this is how I have my net setup on my laptop.
