Intel Anypoint Wireless USB + Windows2K

By shyamaldes ·
I have a server PC with a cable modem using WinME. Have two blue plastic USB units and
connect to USB ports. A Laptop has Win2000 and configured as a client.

I tried configuring using the beta drivers on the intel site but had problems connecting using internet connection sharing.

Is anybody using this setup? and how do I solve this Win2K problem.

the esiest way would be to get a new cable modem usb is not the way to go to set up a net work under any conditions the stadard in the industry is to get nic cards in all your computers and go to a t base 100 network with your set up you are only geting 10 mb of transfer with t base 100 you get 100mb of transfer. i just dont think that cable modems or any modem should use usb .what software is on your server windows 2000 server or advanced server( if that is the case all you would have to do isinstall dsclient on all your computers that dont run 2000 its on the windows server cd ) you did not say. with nic cards you plug in to a cable dsl router such a linksys brsef41 it provides dhcp, a hardware firewall , and dmz to expose one computer to the internet which would be your server if you are running web sites. who ever came up with this usb and wireless networking scheme(not you the companys involved) is a fool you are exposed to hackers big time. for the cablel router and nic cards it will cost you around 300 dollars well worth the price for a secure network (intel is a piece of junk). so what you have a little cable its better than being hacked and your network will be much more faster and efficient.wireless has a long way to go i dont know why intel pushes it when it is not a indusry standard. email me for futher instructions on how to set up a real net work. reject this answer to keep your points this is just my opion, maybe some one else has a solution but i am shure they will basically tell you the same thing.f you email me about this put intel in the adress line so i dont delet it.
