Hi, I am strugling to set up a wireless network. I run Windows XP wizard and it told me to use a USB flash drive in order to automatically set up a wireless network. The next step I had to plug the flash drive into the access point but my Router does not have a USB hub. Is there a way around so I could set up my network without having to plug a USB drive in a Router. O may be I just need a special router orelse.....
I think your "access" point is probably your non-wireless pc...its quite easy to share an internet connection that way under xp - so i suggest doing that (if you have another pc!)
I have the same problem!! is there any way to turn my computer so that i can connect my pda via wireless and share my internet?
By far the easiest way is to get a router that complies with these specifications:
1: Has wireless connectivity.
2: Is worth being called a router.
Otherwise, I, personaly would set up the internet-connected computer as a true proxy server with third party software, and not mess with that windows internet sharing junk.
Is your router a wireless router? Through the Windows XP Wireless Connection Setup wizard, you cannot set up your router - you can only create an "ad-hoc" (peer-to-peer) wireless network using the wireless card in your computer. An ad-hoc network has no Internet connectivity unless you have turned on Internet Connection sharing in your host computer.
i think you have to plug your usb drive to each of your computer, i think it will be more simply
