XP laptops cannot connect wirelessly or throught LAN

By Sarahng86 ·
Hi - am currently on a 4 month attachment in Spain.
Am using a Scientific Atlanta modem and a Draytek Vigor 2100G wireless router.

There are 4 of us sharing this apartment - and only those using Vista or Mac can connect to the internet.
For those using XP - we are connected to the network - but we can't view pages.
We followed the Draytek Guide to attempt to connect to the router via IP address (even with the vista laptop) but we can't get through.
We've already reset both the modem and the router.

Please advise !!

You need to run the Wireless Network Setup Wizard

by OH Smeg In reply to XP laptops cannot connect ...

Open Windows XP left Click on Start, All Programs, Accessories, Communication and then the Wireless Network Setup Wizard.

Follow the Prompts and enter the Routers Security Code when prompted and provided that the Router is set to accept 4 Concurrent Connection that should be all that is required.

If the Router has not been set to accept 4 Concurrent Connections you need to run the Routers Setup Wizard and connect directly by a CAT5 Cable so you can access the Routers Setup Procedure which involved entering a HTTP Address in a Browser then when that Page Opens you enter the User Name & Password for the Router and change the required settings as per the Instruction Manual that comes with the Router.
