XP can't communicate wireless
I use a linksys router that works wireless with 4 ibm thinkpad machines..one with win 2000 prof, rest with win 98.
All ok can either connect wirelsssly or use DSL.
Got new IBM G40 Machine with internal card and xp pro
set up DSL dail up works fine
The card finds the linksys router but will not communicate with it
signal strengt excellent etc.
When using DOs to ping router, either first packet is lost or all four packets are lost
Ibm came and installed a new card, Ibm loaded all new drivers.
Lynksys loaded all new drivers etc.
Router works fine on my lap with IBM T22 but on my lap the g40 behaves as above
Spent 30 hours so far and am ready to throw the xp machine in trash
There is no firewall
WEP enscription has been turned off
Can ANYONE help?
P.S. if it sounds like I know waht I am talking about I don't so please if there are any ideas, make it complete and simple..thanks
