Can someone please point me to instructions to set up a wireless LAN between a laptop running XP and a desktop with 98SE. Can I use XP's "Set up a wireless network for home or small office" bearing in mind that the desktop is only 98SE? Thanks for any advice and points to watch out for.
Ok , once you have established a connection with both PC's to the router , run the Network wizard on both , ignoring it when it says about unconnected devices , and make sure that they are both in the same network group , usually defaults to MShome , give both they're own names and locations when asked and finish the wizards , don't bother making a network disk , it is just as easy to do it manually , then check in Network Places / Entire Network / MShome , and see if they can see each other . Disable firewalls initially when doing this .
Sorry Weskit , been at work today and just got on comp now , the Network wizard for XP is in Network Connections / Network Setup Wizard , similar in 98se My Networks / New network or something like that , I don't have a 98se PC to hand at the moment , although , if I remember correctly it does involve a bit of manual setting up as well in TCP/IP etc. like having to manually enter the IP address of the gateway ( the routers IP ) and checking the bindings , if you have a floppy you can make a disk to transfer settings to the 98se comp.
