    Wireless Connection

    I dont know how many of you use wireless, but I bet one without it would even know more than the linksys tech support. Alright, so all I want is to know how to have the Wireless option. I've tried using XP's help and support and they tell me to go into Network Connections and right click on Wireless Networks but i dont have anything in that folder that is under the name of Wireless Networks. The only thing in there is Local Area Connection which is used for a modem which i do not use on that computer. Any advice would be appreciated more than a linksys tech support employee.

    *******UPDATE******** : No longer looking to fix the problem but rather get new/better and also cheaper hardware. Thanks.

    First question, do you have a laptop or other computer that has a wireless card in it?

    Re: Wireless Connection

    No... I am using two desktop PCs. One has a router and modem hooked to it, and im trying to get my other computer to get hooked to the wireless using an USB adapter. I did all the technical installations exactly how I was supposed to but after the installation I never had a Wireless Network option added to my network connections.

    If you don't have a wireless connection icon in your bundle of network connections, that means that the drivers are missing/haven't been installed/or the hardware on the computer is not being detected. So what kind of wirelss gear does your computer have??? (built in laptop??, PCI card??? USB device???) and what are you trying to connect too???

    If you don't have that Wireless conection icon, then something was not detected during the installation process...

    Try going through the network connection wizard for broadband connection and see if it offers the USB wireless device... And if it doesn't, run the network diagnostic check on the last page of the network connection wizard, and see if it finds and lists the device... If that doesn't find it, then it is a driver problem...

    How did you install the drivers??? Did you go through 'Add new hardware', or did you just run the installation program that came with the wireless...

    EDIT: Do a search of the Microsoft Help for the 'Wireless Network Setup Wizard', which should direct you to the proper setup utility...
