    There has been a lot of posts lately (including myself :D ) about wireless problems and a lot of them are due to the initial connection between the PC (or laptop) and router.

    If you wipe any wireless networks in "availible networks" in XP so you have no prefered networks and preferably disable the wireless connection. If you do it the other way around you can't access the wireless list :biggrin .
    Then configure your router. Make sure all the settings are what you want. Turn the router off for a minute and then turn it back on.
    When your router is all "sweet" then enable you wireless connection. It should now find your wireless point (because you set the SSID broadcast to enable diddn't you!). If you have set it to require a key it will ask you for the key and then you can connect. :D
    Once the initial connection has been made you can "tweak" it to your desire!
    Hope this helps :eek:
