Thanks ,

I have an ADSL connection and i'm trying to connect to it
from my laptop(compaq) thru compaq wireless card.

The configuration's looks fine & it shows 'Excellent
Signal Strength' but it doesn;t connect to the Wireless
Access point at all.

On this laptop, i have a linux partition as well but the
wireless part isnlt workign there too.

Would be great if i could get the win xp working about it
atleast.

Cheers,
Dicky

Is the DSL modem connected to a wireless router? If yes, is the
wireless card in the compaq set to the same SSID, channel, etc. as the
router? Have you run the WinXP network wizard?

yup the DSL modem is connecteed to the wireless AP. Also
the SSID is set correctly on both the Wireless AP & the
compaq wireless card. I tried the WinXP wizard as well.

my only doubt is if i have to re-install the driver for
the compaq card coz otherwise ervything's seems
right....also it shows excellent signal strenght.

thanks,

Jo

Does the software for the wireless card have any provision to "join" a
network? My wireless scans for local signals and shows signal
strength, but doesn't use the connection until I "join" the network.

Also, what happens when you try to bring up a web page? Does it time
out? Does it just hang there "resolving"? What messages/symptoms do
you get?
