My roommate has a Mac OS x and also a wireless router (Apple Airport Express) and I am running Windows XP. She has it so that only people who she accepts the MAC addresses will be able to connect, and also she has the connection hidden. The only problem is that I cannot even see the connection to connect to it. She added my MAC address in the list, and I have also added her connection to my wireless properties, but still cannot connect.

It's asking me for a network card, and I just put in the password of her connection, is that right? Any suggestions would be great.

Hey
Try to see that you computer is set to infrastructure mode instead of AD-Hoc.
This might be the problem.
Check and make sure your NIC mac address and see that it's set correctly
in the router.
Good Luck

Is your wireless card operating on the same band as her router?
