Okay here's the situation, I installed Windows XP Professional onto this old Compaq Armada E500 laptop and I am having a [bleep] of a time connecting it wirelessly. I am trying to use this Xircom CreditCard Ethernet Adapter IIps that I found and I have already been able to install the required drivers and it shows up in the device manager without problems but what I have discovered is that this is a bare bones version of professional as the system does not search for wireless networks. This a problem as when I try to enter my wireless network's information it is only able to send packages but not receive any. I have done some searching on the net and all the solutions are to simply allow the connnection to automatically receive IP address. That does not work in my situation as it only says it has little to no connectivity. I also tried that wireless network wizard but that does not help as my wireless router, Linksys WRT54G has no usb ports to lug the flash drive in! I even tried that home network one and that had me running around in circles swapping discs back and forth getting nowhere fast.
