    I have set up a wireless network using the mn-500 basestation. When I have
    both modems enabled in my network connections. I can see that the network is
    connected on my base workstation and the remote wireless workstation is
    receiving a good signal. Neither workstations can connect to the internet.
    My WEP settings are disabled on both ends. Could there be a conflict between
    Windows Wireless Network and the Microsoft Broadband Network?

    It is hard to understand how to whole thing is connected? Two Modem?

    A typical Home Network Sharing the Internet should look like this:

    Hopefully you have one computer that is connected to the base station with a wire.

    Seeing signal in the Wireless configuration application, or reading somewhere in the
    system that you are connected does not mean that you actually have a functional Wireless

    A simple way to ascertain that you have a connection is to try to use the Internet
    Browser in a Wireless Client to find out if you can connect to the Router's (Access
    Point) web menus (see your hardware manual for the Router's IP Address log in and

    Jack, thanks for the quick response. I'll clarify the situatin then go back
    and review the links you sent to try them out. I have a microsoft wireless
    mn-500 base station connected to my broadband modem. I have an mn-510
    wireless usb modem on a computer in another room. According to the Broadband
    Network software, it mn-510 is receiving a good signal and shows the
    connection to my base. I can open the basestation management tool, but I
    cannot access any pages on the internet. Does that help clear up my set up?

    Thanks again.

    The confusion stems from you referring to your Wireless Client card (mn-510) as a Modem.
    Your system consist of; Broad Band Modem, Wireless Cable/DSl Router and Wireless Client
    The links in my above post should help you to solve the problem.
