I posted this question earlier which relates to my attempts to set up a wireless home network:
My network is working with one rather annoying problem - i lost the internet connection from my Win ME desktop which is acting as the host for my network - if that's the right term - ie, it is connected to the router and is hard wired to the modem.
I've tried fiddling with network components, running the connection wizard (which reports that everything is ok when it clearly isn't). It may be helpful to know that instead of almost instantly telling me that a connection cannot be made (like if i had my modem turned off) it instead takes about 90 seconds for that screen to come up - like it's trying really hard to connect - but no joy.
The laptop connects to internet fine.
