Steve, I didn't read your repsonse correctly and posted another question about what is happening now.  I have posted the text of the question below;  Any help you can provide would really be appreciated.

If you recall, I have 2 computers on my small home network; a laptop (my primary machine) and an old desktop that I use as a ftp server and a server for Grand Prix Legends.  Both computers are running WinXP Home Edition and both computers have static IPs.  I'm also using a Linksys router.

The problem I'm having now is that whenever I shutdown the laptop and reboot it, it is unable to connect to the network.  None of the network drives are avaialble and I can't connect to the internet.  When I go to look at the complete network, I only see the laptop listed and not the server (as it would be normally).  The only way I can get the computer connected to the network again is by removing the network connection, then running the network connection wizard again.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

on the laptop, in device manager, go to view, show hidden devices, and then see if multiples are listed
also get the latest, greatest drivers for the adapter
Tracy, do you use the laptop to connect to other networks (like at work)?

Thanks Steven,

In Device manager, I found not necessarily exact duplicates but the following;

1394 Net Adapter
3Com 3C920 Integrated Fast Ethernet Controller
Direct Parellel
MAC Bridge Miniport
MAC Bridge Miniport - Packet scheduler
WAN Miniport (IP)
WAN Miniport (IP) - Packet Scheduler
WAN Miniport (L2tp)
WAN Miniport (PPOE)
WAN Miniport (PPTP)

Are all these really necessary?

I'll update the 3Com adapter drivers this afternoon.

For the moment, I only connect to the home network (which consists of this laptop and the old desktop that serves as a GPL and FTP server) and then access the internet.  I do not connect to any other network now.

Tracy, remove everythng from network, reboot, and reinstall the wireless card
and let it install just what it needs
follow the link above, and do not let it install the bridge
you don't need the
1394 Net Adapter
Direct Parellel
WAN Miniport (PPOE)
