I bought a d link router (I think its DI 614P?). I hooked it up to my computer (XP). Seemed to go okay...much better than the HP router i had- i can connect with no problem.. My daughter has a computer with ME on it. I have a Belkin usb network adapter. I installed it on her computer. I can't get her computer on the internet. I have spent way too much time trying to get this together, can someone please tell me how to set it up on ME? I dont have a clue why its not working. thanks,
elise

Well, first off, the Belkin USB adapter is suspect. I'd buy a real PCI Ethernet card, they're a much better choice for networking. You can have a Netgear NIC for less than $20, I've used them for years with 100% success. USB is not designed for networking, and even if you get past the driver issues, you may still have problems if you use other USB devices on that computer.

I use Netgear, but most any PCI NIC would be better than a USB connection. :)
