Hello all
I am trying to setup a a home wireless network between to desktops. I have a dell truemobile 2300 router and a dell 1300 wireless adaptor. My ISP is verizon though (DHCP) connection . When I connect the router I no longer have an internet connection and do not know where to go from here. Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated. I keep getting the run around from Dell and Verizon. Both computers operating system is Windows XP. Have 2 adult college students, 1 high schooler and 2 elementary schoolers sharing one computer since we are unable to set up home network. Please HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
