Wireless networking in Windows 2000

By haycoconsulting ·
We are setting up a five machine wireless network using:

A) one Dell TM1184 wireless broadband router and B) 4 (four) Dell TM1180 USB wireless adapters.

I expected that Windows 2000 would recognize everything (yes, fed them them the drivers)and the network setup would be relatively painless. That's why I had Windows 2000 Professional installed on all units. Unfortunately, like most other things, it aint being as painless as I would like....

Any tips from the membership on setting up the network (haven't made it talk yet - my first wireless gig) and security?

Thanks.

1. If you have not already done so, make sure that you run the setup for your Router/Access Point.

2. Make sure that the workstations are setup to use the same ID as the router/access point.

3. If you have setup WEP/Encryption on the router, then the key generated must be entered on each workstation before they will communicate.

4. Make sure you have the workstations on the same channel as the router. If the workstations are setup for auto detect, refer to #3 above.
