    I hooked up a friend with a wireless network card last night, and i plugged it in and it worked fine. Today he says that it isn't working so i was wondering what might cause this or if there are any guides or checklist so the kid can check them so i don't have to drive 3hours to help him. I know little about wireless so anyhelp would be great.
    (i just put in the linksys card in and windowsXP configured everything last night)

    Thanks,
    mooo

    sometines there are software conflicts...use either windows wireless service or the card driver, but don't use both

    also, turn both the router and the modem of and on

    Usually better on most setups to load the card software first then shut down fit card and reboot.
    Even though MS has Wireless wizard itself, on SP2.
