Windows 2000/XP wireless networking
Posted on 2004-08-23
A customer has a Windows 2000 PC which is used to connect to the internet, a Windows 2000 laptop, and a new Win XP Home PC. The laptop already connects to the Win 2000 PC (and out to the internet), but the Win XP Home doesn't. Both the laptop and Win XP have wireless kit installed, and they're all on the same workgroup.
The XP machine did see the laptop, and vice versa, the laptop can see the Win 2000 PC, but need to connect the XP machine to the Win 2000 PC. The wizards all work, but then when trying to connect, I can't see the Win 2000 PC from the Win XP one.
I can't swap the XP and Win 2000 PC's, as the Win 2000 PC has the ISDN connectors, and the XP machine isn't s standard build (Sony Vaio thin client thing).
What do I need to do?
(Hope I've explained it properly. Just ask if you need clarification).
Forgot to mention, when the laptop is next to the Win XP machine, it still connects to the Win 2000 PC and the internet, so unsure if it's the wirelss kit.
