XP Pro SP3 updated a lot.\n\nI just set up wireless networking between two laptops on my new Linksys\nWRT160Nv3 router. Everything seems fine.\n\nOne of the laptops is always on my desk and was previously on the router via\nEthernet cable. Shouldn't I be able to just switch the "desktop" enablment\nfrom wireless back to wired and still access the other one which remains on\nwireless? (I'm online now using the ethernet connection.)\n\nPerhaps I'm barking up the wrong tree. The older computer doesn't have\nhardware for modern security protocols like WPA. My idea was to bypass that\nby wiring it but have modern security on the one I move around the house.
