    I have a Netgear 834G that works with two XP PC's in LAN or Wireless mode. I recently purchased a new Vista based Compaq laptop. This PC connects to the Netwgear and operates normally to the internet when wired to the LAN port. I cannot get the wireless connection to work. The Compaq sees the available netgear wireless netgear but will not connect. I have manually installed thhe new laptop identity and MAC address in the Wireless station Access list but without any success. Help most appreciated please

Is this for wireless?

Go to Network and sharing center first then delete all netowrks under manage wireless network. then go to " connect to a network" and if able to see your network there then click conenct then type in wep key.

it is important also to make sure if the router still retain the same wep key you have now.

if this is not for wireless PC who is your internet service povider? is it cable? the authentication for cable is the mac address of the Main Pc which i believe in your case is the xp computer's  Mac adress.

 try checking your device (router) because there are routers that are not compatible with Vista.
