Whichever one you want, Windows XP has a Wireless Configuration Zero service that will configure most wireless cards. And most wireless cards come with their own software to do this. There is no right or wrong one to use, just use whichever one you are more comfortorable with.

Usually not, just make sure that the settings our the same on bothe sides. Check the Encryption Type(WEP,WPA), the KeyLength(64bit, 128but, etc) and then make sure you type in the actual key for 64bit encryption it a 10 digit Hex number 0-F only. If all else faile reset your router and configure it from the beggining.

Honestly, whichever works for you. Having setup wireless networks numbering in the triple-digits over the years, I have seen both the Vendor-specific configuration software significantly outperform Windows' native utility and vice-versa.

One thing to look into is if you are going to use the ProSet app, disable the Wireless Zero service in Comp. Management.

Boil it down...what ever works. One big suggestion is to copy and paste your WEP/WPA keys so to ensure against entry errors.
