    Anthony,

    If you look at the web site that Carey gave, you'll find that, depending
    upon your operating system, you may not be able to follow Tip #1. With
    a single exception, the settings described in Tip #1 don't exist in
    Windows NT/2K/XP, for instance. For details:

    http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&newwindow=1&c2coff=1&selm=73o5l01semenl9k4q45h9iddagc0j6ubo2%404ax.com

    What's more, following that tip wouldn't help, because it has nothing to
    do with the problem that you describe.

    The Windows platform (including Windows 9x and NT/2000/XP) has its
    networking infrastructure based upon TCP/IP, with NetBIOS Over TCP/IP
    (NBT) used as an interface between TCP/IP and the various networking
    applications.

    Any properly configured installation of Windows will run just fine with
    these components.

    Be selective when accepting advice, web pages or otherwise, that
    contains instructions to install redundant and unnecessary components,
    such as IPX/SPX or NetBEUI. Adding these extra components may serve as
    a workaround, but will add needless complications that may cause
    problems in the future.

    Diagnose and fix the problem - don't just fix the symptoms.

    Your problem may not be unique to the wireless environment. You may get
    more advice from one of the forums that specialises in networking
    problems with your operating system. For instance, if you have Windows
    XP, you might get help in microsoft.public.windowsxp.network_web.
