Wireless/Wired Network Issues

    I have two desktops (Win XP) wired to a router, plus on laptop (Win XP
    Pro) wirelessly connected to the same router. In addition, I have a
    DSL modem connected (wired) to said router.

    The two desktops are able to connect to the internet and share files
    and print from the same printer. The laptop can "see" the network, but
    won't connect to the internet or share files and printers with the
    desktops.

    By saying the laptop can "see" the network I mean that the wireless
    icon pops up in the systray with the correct name of the network,
    NOWIRES in this case. However, when I check the network neighborhood
    from the laptop it can only see itself.

    I've run the network connection wizard countless times, choosing every
    imaginable combination of settings I can think of, yet am still having
    issues that have pushed me to the brink of cyber-homicide. At one
    point everything worked correctly, but the lap top hard drive crashed
    and after I replaced it I haven't gotten things to work.

    I appreciate anyones help.

    Not sure, but this isn't the appropriate group. Don't know which is the
    right one, but in the telecom groups uk.telecom.broadband might be worth a
    try.

    Have you got matching usernames & passwords on all machines? Are all
    machines in the same workgroup?

    Log in to the router and look at the security page for the wireless
    network. You need to match these settings and passphrases in the
    laptop when you try to connect.

    Could also be a firewall issue, especially if you are using a work computer.

    You need to first check whether you are getting an IP address. If you are,
    but cannot access the network, then you need to check your firewall logs.

    Highly unlikely though, seems a bit of a backwards operation that one,
    stop all outgoing requests.

    One step at a time.
