Default wireless XP and ME together

Please can anyone tell me where I can find the info on connecting a Windows
Me laptop to an NTL wireless router which is at present used by a machine
running XP so that both will run? The router and cards are Belkin

Are you talking about how to share resources (share files, ect) between
the two machines with both machines connected to the router?

No, just about connecting the WinME machine to the router to get the
internet working. Is this possible? Because I have had a try and not
succeeded.

Maybe I no longer know my way around ME. It is 5 years since I ran it..

I would suspect that you could. When I got my laptop,it was running Windows
ME. I brought a wireless Linksys card for it and wireless worked with ME,
back in 2000.

The only problem was that ME was such a crash prone dog. ME would crash and
reboot the machine when it has a wireless connection due to interference,
like a car, plane, truck, dog barking, etc when they went by. The dog
barking is a little over the top. But I didn't have any problems when I went
to Win 2K and now XP Pro on the laptop and using wireless.

I suggest you call the card's tech support if no one can help you in the NG.

Duane :)
