Hello,
I have a WMP54GS wireless card inside my desktop and I can not get on line with my DSL ATT wireless router/modem. I have 5 lap tops that I am surfing without any issues. How do I configure my desktop so I can browse the internet?

Check TCP/IP Properties.

Start, Connect To, Connection, Properties, Scroll Down TCP/IP and highlight, click Properties and check that Obtain DNS and IP address automatically are enabled.


If that isn't the answer, try turning off the wireless security in the router temporarily -- if you can then connect the Linksys it'll narrow down the possibilities.

When I go to start in Windows XP it does not have an option "connect to"

The linksys is not listed there? There is only ONE icon in the box that says network is unplugged. My system is wireless

okay -- maybe you haven't installed the driver for it. Go Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager and see if the unit is listed or yellow flagged as faulty.

The unit is listed and the box in the lower right hand corner is GREEN. NO yellow flags
