Hi,

1. XPpro DELL Desktop with Ethernet using netgear router works fine, No connection Problem

2. XPpro ibm Thinkpad600e - Netgear wireless card 16-bit ma01 - works fine no connection problems
IP- 192.168.0.1;

3. XPpro Dell Latitude CPI laptop Netgear wireless card 54-bit WR511 -
Good signal strength, but cannot access the internet;
ip: 192.168.0.103???
Default Gateway - doesn't display
I've heard I'd have to setup an IP range (192.168-0.1 thru 192-168.0.4) on the desktop router. Is there a site that can walk me through my type of setup?
thanks.
Mike
