Hi everyone,

I just got my linsksys wireless router up and running. Am running three laptops off of it. One is wired directly in and works fine (xp). Second is new dell with centrino (xp), that's working fine.

But third is dell with win2000 pro with lucent wireless card and ORiNCO Client Manager. I am able to see the network and status says "Connected to Network" but when I launch IE, I'm not really connecting to the web and getting no pages. IM doesn't load either.

Help! The third pc is my wife's and need to get it up and running. <_<

Thanks in advance.

Welcome mjneedshelp <_<

Have you tried running XP's networking wizard? Create the floppy, and use it to setup the connection on the W2K computer.

Thanks for your quick response. I don't have the floppy drive for either of my laptops. Can I download something to a zip drive maybe?
