Hi, I just installed a Wireless Access-Point in a PC and a WLAN card in a notebook, both running Windows XP Pro, it went really easy and fast, the installation was just a click, my notebook recognized the other one and started receiving an excellent signal immediately, but, I couldn’t get to the internet, I clicked off the Firewall, both have automatic DNS,  tried everything that I would normally do with a TCP/IP connection when in trouble, but no way, I could not connect. Is there anything that I should do that I didn’t?

Can anybody help?

You might try resetting your TCP/IP stack:
 Start->Run->CMD <enter>
 at the prompt, type:

 netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt <enter>

Winsockfix:
 Download and run the following:

Have you run the network setup wizard on both machines?  Is your wireless access point a pci card or usb, or is it an access point with a 4 port switch built in?  Does your computer get internet throught the access point or directly through a cable/DSL modem or dial-up?

Yes I get to the Internet through the access point Router. Yes I have run the network setup wizard on both machines, maybe I did something wrong?

You said that you get internet through the router, but does the internet come through a cable or dsl modem or through a LAN?  Either way, have you tried cloning the mac address on the router?  If there is more than one router on the network, such  as a cable/dsl modem with a dhcp router built in, there will be conflicts.

Well, thank you all for your efforts in trying to help me, after trying all kind of solutions, including the ones that you all sent, I decided to try another Access Point and another Network card and that worked out. Now I don’t know which one was the faulty one but it works.

Thank you again.
