    TROUBLESHOOTING A WIRELESS NETWORKING CONNNECTION BETWEEN A NOTEBOOK OR
    LAPTOP AND A DESKTOP COMPUTER.

    Despite doing everything according to the book (and Microsoft has an
    excellent article on setting up a wireless connection at
    http://tinyurl.com/pxd82 )
    you may find that you still can't get a notebook or laptop to
    communicate wirelessly with a desktop pc.

    When you have tried all else - or preferably before you even begin
    - make sure that the "Peer-to-Peer Networking" component is
    loaded in the Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs/Add a Windows
    Component section.

    Without this component it will be impossible to wirelessly connect
    computers.

    Then remove the wireless SSID from the client computer (the only which
    is not acting as the host computer from which the network was
    originally initiated).

    Note: windows wireless zero configuration utility may be turned on as
    well as the network adapter's configuration utility. Turning on
    Microsoft's utility to wirelessly control a network will not actually
    override or replace any SSID settings previously set up under the
    network card's utility!

    So REMOVE any previous network set up using the network card's
    utility, THEN add the network again to correspond to the proper
    settings set up on the host computer.

    Finally note that the connection must be initiated from the host
    computer because it is the host computer that will set the IP address
    for the client computer, and not the other way around.
