I currently have a computer running off a Linksys wireless network.  I'm adding a new computer and would like to use the wireless network to transfer files to the new network. I also plan to leave the old computer on the network and use it for back up.  Its been a while since I configured my network.  Can you outline the steps I need to follow to accomplish this?

More information.  The new computer I recently added is a Dell with XP Home.  When I added the wireless adapter and installed the driver, it instantly found the Internet from the main computer upstairs that has a DSL connection and a wireless hub.

I then upgraded from XP Home to XP Pro.  After re-installing the wireless adapter and the driver, the new computer doesn't find the Internet or any of the other PCs on the wireless network.  

Are there other settings in XP Pro that I need to change in order have this computer join the network?

Many thanks.

Initial answer was not specific to problem I was having.  My follow up comment contained a question as to whether there were other settings in XP Pro that I needed to change in order to join the network.  There was never an answer so I p ursued other resources to solve the problem.
