    Running a laptop with Xp Home edition. Satellite receiver is connected
    via a Ethernet cable to the Local Area Connection.
    I'm trying to set up my laptop with a satellite receiver and I can't get
    the receiver to connect to the internet. Occasionally I can get an IP
    address; but that is a hit and miss. The receiver does work with my
    desktop; so I know it's working! I have a USB wireless adapter receiving
    the signal and I have that port sharing with my local Area connection.
    Getting ready to go on a 2 week vaccation and I would like to take the
    receiver with me!
    The cross over Ethernet cable. Don't know if what I am using is proper;
    but the cable does work with the desktop; I'm assuming that means it
    should work with the laptop.

    Any suggestions?

    Found my own solution. I was using the wrong cable. Changed cables;
    receiver kicked in right away!
