I installed my router (Linksys WRT54G) as follows:
Desktop plugged into router, modem plugged into router. The desktop can connect and that was when I changed the router password as well as the key.
I've tried to get my laptop to connect wirelessly but I keep getting the message: "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range..." I try to connect again but nothing happens.
I read through this page: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u.../wireless.mspx
Specifically the section under Configure your wireless router and have gone through the steps with my laptop. I'm not sure if I did that correctly though. Is the section Administrative password asking for the key that was decided when configuring the desktop? or the router password? or something new?
After that I've disconnected the cable and tried to connect wirelessly to the wireless network listed but then it says I'm out of range, even though I'm right beside the router.
