Hello,
I've currently rewired my whole wireless system and I switched up the computers which held the modem and the wireless card. The setup is currently the same as before, only they were switched around. I currently have:
Siemens SpeedStream 4100 Ethernet ADSL Modem - This shouldn't be the problem because I've got a wired connection to this computer, and I'm currently running on it. Connection is: Modem-Wireless Router-Computer

Airlink 101 Wireless Router Model: AR670W - There may be a problem with the wireless connectivity because the light under the wireless part is still blinking, instead of being solid. I've already gone to 192.168.1.1 to check the settings. If you need a shot of those settings, tell me which pages are needed, and I can provide them. -Update- It probably isn't this because my sister has a laptop and she is still connected to the wireless.

Motorola Wireless PCI Adapter WPCI810G- I downloaded the latest driver directly from the website. I think this may also be the problem because when I downloaded the driver to the other computer, it said that it may not be compatable. -Look at bottom for more info-

Both computers are running on Windows XP SP2-SP3

When I previously downloaded the driver on the computer I'm currently using it worked, but on the other computer, it had said it may not be compatable. I downloaded it anyways and it's working. It detected my network but it isn't connecting.

Only a suggestion - Start Menu - Connect To - Right click you wireless connection - Properties - On the General tab, click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) - Properties - Make sure "Obtain an IP address automatically" and also "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are checked.

I've fixed the problem. I forgot to check if it the authentication settings were opened or shared.
