    I have cable internet and use the MBNS to use the internet with my laptop. I
    recently bought a new computer. I am using the CD to install the base station
    to the new computer. It tells me that I have connected it properly and I used
    all the same setting as I had before.....base station name,channel,WEP
    key,etc. Once I get through this step and it starts programming it then tells
    me there was a problem configuring your base station. I tried to restore to
    factory default but that didn't work. I uninstalled the norton virus program
    that came with my computer and disabled my firewall but that didn't work. I
    saw a previous post about a similar problem and tried the suggestions and
    wasn't successful there either. Now what!?! Thanks so much for your time and
    any sugesstions.

    The version you're using on the CD is probably old and isn't aware of XP SP2
    which it conflicts with since it XP SP2 has lots of networking updates. Are
    you connecting via Ethernet cable and want to administer the base station?
    If so, just open your browser and put in the address line.
    That's the IP address of the base station itself. The username (unless you
    changed it) is "admin" - all lower case, no quotation marks - without a
    password. You can do everything there the pretty interface allowed you to

    If you really want the software, you can download it at the bottom link in
    this Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

    If you're attempting to set up a wireless connection for the new computer,
    go into Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services and way down at the
    bottom enable (and set to Automatic) Wireless Zero Configuration. This will
    let Windows XP manage the connection in Network Connections.
