All right guys, I'm officially asking for help. I am trying to impliment a wireless hub in my house. No big whoop. Just to get the thing up and running, I started a shared internet connection via an open network connection. That worked like a charm. So, now I want to impliment this as a secured network. This is where the problem is. I can not, for the life of me, get my laptop to access the network. Here's where I am at: - I have set up the wireless hub on my host PC and have the wireless network settings printed out. - I tried the automatic wireless network set up XP has using a USB flash drive, but I get an error and it does not work. - When I enter the network key manually, the laptop attempts to connect, but it eventually gives up. I did notice that the IP address, subnet address and the other parameter (name I can't recall) are all zeros and are not getting assigned automatically as they should. I have no idea if that is the problem or a result of the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated in solving this. Thanks!!!!!
