Hey everyone...here's a preemptive "thank you" for any help you can give.
I just bought a Linksys WRT54G router, which I run cable internet through on a computer running Windows XP Professional. On a computer in the next room, I have connected a NETGEAR MA111 USB device (to receive the signal) on a computer running Windows XP Home.
On the receiving computer (XP Home/MA111), it picks up the signal being put off by the Linksys router (changed the SSID just to be sure) just fine. With that in mind, when I open an Internet Explorer window, I get the ol' "page cannot be found" error.
If I am not mistaken, the computer on the receiving end (XP Home/MA111) should be Internet-ready at this point, right? I mean, it's receiving the signal, and what more is there? I'm lost, and new to the whole networking/wireless field.
I have tried everything with both WEP encryption settings turned on AND off.
I'm at wits end...please help!!! I'll do whatever it takes! Thanks!
