XP Professional/Home Problems

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RnJhc2Vy?=, Mar 30, 2005.

  1. I have set up a wireless network at home, basically to let my kids use their
    wireless laptops from anywhere in the house without wanting to use my PC, i
    have managed to use the wireless network setup wizard on my sons XP Home
    edition laptop using the USB device fine, but my daughter has XP Professional
    and whenever i put the memory stick into her laptop as in the instructions,
    and it tells me that it wont work with this version of windows. Any
    suggestions on how to get around this would be helpful, i dont have to buy XP
    Home for this to work do I?
    Thanks

    Just enter the wireless information manually. You want the SSID and the
    encryption key. Copy down the information from the wireless router's
    configuration screen.
