Laptop w/ windows xp won't transmit sound to viewsonic wpg-150
We're a volunteer fire department and trying to setup a wireless connection to a projector using a WPG-150 router. We have no issues with video, but we do with audio. I've hooked up the audio out from the router to our surround sound using a 3.5mm to (2) RCA y adapter and a standard rca cable. We have no audio when we try to play things over the connection. The sound works fine if we disconnect from the router. laptop is a Dell D630 with XP SP2.

Chances are that it is still remembering an old password somewhere in the properties... dig through the options an properties to see if there is a place to enter a password that may be overriding the one you are entering when you try to connect.
I know it sounds wrong, but I've run into this before on Windows 7 laptops and have found a previous password embedded in the properties that (once the correct password is entered there) solves the problem.
It is possible that, if you have the router set to wireless N only, your XP machine won't interact with it. Your XP adapter probably doesn't support wireless "N"--you'll have to tell the router to use "N" or "G"

Any wireless router will work. You just have to find the router’s
signal on your computer (and sign in to the network potentially). Your
laptop should have a built in wireless card. If it doesn’t, you won’t
be able to wirelessly use the internet until you do.
I’m assuming you are using Windows. Click Start at the bottom of the
screen, the open your Control Panel. Select the category Network and
Internet Connections. There should be a wireless network setup wizard
in there, and will help guide you through the process of setting
everything up. Good luck!
What is your operating system (Vista/XP, older Windows)? Have you turned on the router's wireless router radio from the computer that is connecting? (Login to the router's setup page at 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on the router) and go to Advanced menu and click Wireless Settings.) While you are there, enable the SSID Broadcast (another checkbox hust below the one for Wireless Router Radio). Now check if your laptop can see the router.
Additional FAQs that might be helpful are at http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2589. That page has a link to setting up XP for wireless networking as well.
try this plug up a line to laptop to modem to check to see if you can get connected if so then make sure you are on the same network and if so then call comcast to help you setup the laptop wireless settings in sound like the settings online doesn't have the laptop enable to accept the laptop
Windows XP has a built in wifi configuration tool, previous versions of windows dont have this feature. But if you were to buy a wireless card it comes with software for wireless to work on all versions of windows from 98 - XP most if not all new laptops have wifi built in & that will be able to share your broadband connection through the netgear router. You can configure the laptop & pc to share files & printer between each other, easy way of doing that is by using the wireless network setup wizard which can be found in Start -> All Prograns -> Accessories -> Communications -> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
