Question about Linksys Computers & Internet
I have set up my router on a Vista laptop. Works fine.
I am trying to get a desktop with XP to access the router
but get a red x. The program says the wireless PCI card is working.
The card is a Linksys WMP11 2.4GHz 802.11b.
The cd is Setup Wizard ver.1.2.
The desktop has basic Windows XP with no sps.
Would like to get it on the internet to update the os and other
software. Thanks. Bill
The problem sounds like you have the router set to WPA security. The WMP11 cards do not support this security standard, they only use WEP 64 bit and 128bit. If you attach to the router with your vista machine and go into the configuration settings and change the security level to WEP you should be able to get online.
