On Windows XP, the OS will prevent a connection to an unsecured wireless network such as what you have.
You can try:
Double click on the red WiFi icon, click on the "Change the order of preferred networks", Click on "Add", type in the Network name (SSID) of your router (you can get this by using the connected PC and log in to the NetGear's Webbased Interface), set Network Authentication to "Open", set Data encryption to "Disabled", OK, reboot your PC.
Alternately, you can set the PC where the Encore ENPWI-G2 card is connected to manual configured settings rather than Auto obtain. Follow what is in the connected PC's settings except that the last number of the IP add be different (ex. connected PC > 192.168.0.100, set the unconnected PC to 192.168.0.101, all the rest subnet, default dns be the same. Of course the 101 must not be in use, if double IP add, change to 102).
In some instances, you may need to use the Encore WiFi configuration utility (normally comes with the drivers in the installer CD) rather than the Windows buil-in WiFi Config utility,
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

There are several possible problems here, and more information is needed to identify which one is causing trouble. First, are you using a high speed dsl or cable internet connection? ...or is your Internet connection a dial-up phone line? This will have a significant effect on how your cables should be connected between the hub and the computers. Windows typically defaults to a 169... address when it is not properly connected to a shared network connection.

I understand that you are using the Windows Internet Connection Sharing to share your internet connection to your other computer.
If you don't have a router to share the connection then you are using Windows ICS connection.
When you enable ICS, the network adapter connected to the local area network is assigned a static IP address of 192.168.0.1.
You can check this site for more information
You can try to connect the two computers first without the internet connection.
Example : PC A 192.168.0.2
You can set the IP addresses manually, just set the tcp/ip properties and from that area you can set the IP address manually.
And for PC B 192.168.0.3
You dont need to set the ip address for the gateway and dns since you are just testing the connection of the two computer.
They should belong to the same workgroup example HOME and set the computer name to PC1 and PC2.
You can right click MY COMPUTER then select PROPERTIES then you will able to see the computer name.
To start the wizard
Choose Control Panel from the Start menu.
Click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Set up or change your home or small office network.

Mine did the same, the station was trying to connect on channel 1 wi-fi where the centre was on channel 11, check under information and wi-fi for both. I then did a restore on the station, put both into installation mode and they found each other after a few mins.
Hope this helps

Since all computers are online, you do not need to change any setting on the router for the computers to share file or resources.
If you are using Windows XP - try this link:
I hope that helps!
