This is driving me insane! I live in a shared flat with 3 people each of whom have their laptop connected to our wireless internet connection through XP. I am on Windows 98 and have the wireless card installed, but after playing with the settings for ages I can't work out how to get it to connect. The laptop was previously connected to a dial-up connection elsewhere and still has that connection available. PLEASE can somebody explain how to get this sorted for me??!!

Hmm... try looking at the channel your two roomates are on and your channel, xp and 98 might have diffrent default channels. Second see if they are B or G and see if your router is putting out the right signal (most can brodcast B and G). Now because of how you said you messed around with the settings i am sure you already have done all this, so reply if this doent get you anwhere and i will think some more

Have you changed the connection settings within your browser to reflect the fact that you no longer use a dialup connection?

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial] How do i look at the channel? Not sure what the channel is. And which of the various connections should i select as default to avoid it trying to use dial up as none of the options are wireless and it seems unable to create such an option. SHould it just be none of them and then the wireless one will connect anyway?
