Ok I will try to give as much info as possible. My roommate has the broadband modem and wireless router (D-Link Dl-524) in his bedroom, along with his Vista machine. He connects into the router so he is a LAN and has access to the Internet.

I have a XP Home machine and a USB wireless adaptor (Linksys WU8546) and I am able to connect to the access point but I can't connect to the Internet. I was able to connect to another router that my adaptor found and got Internet access on that...

Help please!!!

If the network is secured disable encryption on the router and try to connect that way first. Make sure you are not using MAC Address filtering on the router.

When attempting to connect to the D-Link please show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and the D-Link router are both using the 192.168.0.x subnet.

You can't change ICS so either change the D-Link to use something else, such as 192.168.3.x, or disable ICS on your machine.
