    Hello,
    I have a desktop running win XP. I just connected the ethernet cable and its not recognizing the connection, I connected a wireless USB and it recognizes all other wireless routers around except mine that is about 5 feet away, I placed my laptop right beside it and it recognizes my router and I tried connecting the same ethernet cable to the laptop and it also recognizes and starts up internet. any ideas on how to fix this issue?
    thanks
