Re: Problem with connection of networking and VOIP.
Go to your Run program on the computer that your are having connection problems with. Type cmd.exe in the box. When your DOS page appears, type in ipconfig/ release. Be sure to use a space between the / and the word release. After it releases, type in ipconfig/ renew, using the space as well. Close out of your DOS. Recheck your internet connection. Before you recheck it though, make sure that your computer's wireless password, if you are using any, are the same as your wireless router's password. Hope this helps.

See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.
whenever i format one of my computers, when it gets to the point where you format, i format once with the normal ntfs and then right after it finishes i turn it off by holding down the power button until it shuts and then when i get back to the point where it asks about formatting again i do ntfs quick. i do all this because i had the same problem before and this is how i got past it. now the drivers. did you go to dell and download all of the drivers for your computer? whenver you format you need to get all the drivers again. i will usually use another compter to get the wireless network driver first if it has it so i can install that and then put it on a flash drive or something to get it on the other computer and install that so i can download the rest after that
Home Edition is already a version of XP. XP was released in Home and Professional versions. You can find out for sure what version of software you have by right-clicking on the desktop icon for "My Computer" (or on the "My Computer" entry on the Start Menu if the icon is not on your desktop), then clicking on "Properties" from the popup menu.
If you want to upgrade from XP Home to XP Professional, you can do that with the appropriate upgrade CD. But unless you are networking in an office setting, there really are no features in Pro that you don't have in Home.
If you still have questions, please post a follow up comment and I will try to help further.
You have to turn printer sharing on in vista by going to your network map and turn the printer sharing on. This should FixYa! Network Map is located in Network and Sharing Center on the computer with vista.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Try the following:
On your laptop with Vista, click start, then network from the right side. This will take you to the Network Screen. Click on the Network and sharing screen. Click on options such as file sharing, printer sharing etc. Make sure that you can see each device your your network. If you can't you must go to each PC and use the network options on the XP machines. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions that the wizard provides.
I hope this gets you up and running. Thanks for using Fixya.com
