    For the record (aka my history)...............
    XMas 06. PIII laptop for my son from Santa. Configure a D-Link USB Adapter to find our qwest /Actiontec wireless network which is hardwired to our desktop computer. In the beginning, It works and the laptop/D-Link can find the wireless network. Shortly after, the laptop cannot find the network (but can find others in our area) and will not connect. I mentioned this to a co-worker today, while mentioning that I changed channels on the modem, and he asked if I had gotten a new phone. I did. A 2.4 GHz anolog. So he suggested that the frequency was conflicting. It made sense and I proceedingly gone through what I thought was my salvation in the matter. Nonetheless. and after reconfiguring the modem, laptop, unplugging the new telephone, the laptop still cannot locate our own wireless signal. Help!
    Plug and play doesn't really exist with MS OS's does it. If so, I have never experienced it.

    Try removing the 2.4ghz phone from the mix. Unplug the base station and remove the battery from the handset. See if that solves the issue.
