I have a centrino laptop running windows xp professional and a home pc running windows xp home. I bought a wireless adapter to set up a network, but cannot set up a network.It just says wireless connection unavailable. Both wireless adapters are 802.11bMy understanding was that i didn't need a router, have i bought the wrong thing? click hereAny advice?

Thank you for those links jazzypop, they helped me set it up, but i reinstalled xp on the home pc and can't get the network running again.Sometimes the home pc can access the laptop's shared documents, but never the other way around.(I needed the network setup before i wiped the hard drive so that i could transfer all the files)
Do you have any firewalls installed (including the built-in one for XP)?If so, try uninstalling them and see if your network is ok.
To have a wireless network you must have a Gateway/Router access point as well as a wireless card in the laptop. Do you have one?
I uninstalled the firewall and it worked instantly (would have saved a few hours if i had checked here earlier). Thank you again.
