I have been here so many times with a networking problem. I have 3 pcs all running 10mb/s 802.11b wireless lan cards. To one machine 1 have brodaband and a broadband router connected, it is the Linksys befw11s4 2.4ghz 802.11b. The network is very tempremental and will hardly ever work even when the pcs are right next to each other. I have a software wireless connectivity tool which comes with the hardware and it says that there is good signal strength and all computers are connected. I cannot ping the IPs. I cannot see the workgroup computers after running the network wizard on xp pro(all machines have xp pro). um, i think that's it, its so annoying.
