Hi, I am trying to set up a home network. I have two laptops, one running win98SE and one running winXP. Both have linksys WPC54G wireless adapter cards connecting to a linksys WRT54G broadband router which connects to a cable modem. I have both laptops set up successfully to connect wirelessly to the router.

I have tried to set up a wirless home network unsuccessfully. I believe the winXP laptop has setup correctly and identifies itself as being on the "Home Network", however in network neighborhood on the win98 machine there are no computers shown.

I have searched for help elsewhere and in this forum and hope someone can help me here as there is a very similar thread (Wireless Home Network Problem) where it sounded like some great advice was offered.

thanks in anticipation

update - my winXP laptop now shows the win98SE laptop in the Home Network but it is not accessible with an error message saying the network path was not found. There is still nothing showing in the network neighborhood on the win98 system.
