Try to create network - lose internet connection (ME/98)
Posted on 2003-12-05
I have just bought a Netgear wireless router and card to run between a Windows ME desktop PC and 98SE laptop. I had no problems doing the initial set up with the result that the laptop now has wireless internet access. However, i wanted to explore networking options so that i could print and access files on my desktop, from the laptop. When i run the network wizard on the ME computer everything seems to be ok but once i get the message that i have set it up for networking successfully - i lose the internet connection. I can get this back - i tried fiddling with all the network components but in the end i just deleted them all and rebooted) but can anyone tell me how i can get this network to work and keep my interenet connection on the desktop. Also, the laptop has showed no signs of detecting the network i've tried to set up.
Thanks in advance.
