    Wireless Internet with Windows XP

    Locked

    by gsfromws ·

    I have a new windows XP laptop. I can’t get a wireless internet connection to work. I have broadband internet and a cable modem and then a switch. A pc and a wireless access point are both connected to the switch. The Windows 2000 PC works fine, but I just can’t get the laptop to connect to the wireless access point and the internet.

    Can anyone give me the step by step of what I need to do or some things I can look for?

      What cable modem do you have? What ISP have you subscribed to?
      You need to configure modem for your ISP? The settings will be provided either on a CD or emailed/posted to you.

        To clarify what I have. Comcast Broadband Internet going through the Comcast provided cable modem which did go directly to my windows 2000 PC. It worked just fine. I bought a windows xp laptop with wireless Internet capability built-in and ready to go. In order to share the single internet connection, I installed a D-Link switch between the cable modem and the PC. The Internet connection on the PC continues to work as it always did, but only through the switch. I also connected a wireless access point to the switch to receive the wireless transmission from the laptop. I configured the access point device as described with the installation instructions. So it is sitting there waiting for the laptop to establish a connection.

        My question is, as much as possible, can someone give me a step-by-step set of instructions as to what needs to be done with the windows xp laptop to establish that wireless connection with the acess point device that is installed?
