    I scanned that article to which StumpedTechy pointed you. Looks good, but please realize that what is said there is exactly the same for 802.11g adapters, and you can use the adapter's utility instead of XP's if you desire (or don't have XP).

    I recommend after getting the wireless connected, but before configuring for ICS, to check and make sure you really have the two computers communicating. Here's my way to do so.

    To open a Command Window: Start - Run – cmd (command in 98SE) - OK

    To determine a computer's IP address: open a Command Window and type
    ipconfig /all

    Now for some troubleshooting:

    On each PC open a Command window and type
    ping IPofOther (where IPofOther is the IP address of the other PC)

    Do you get Replies, or do you get packets lost?

    If you got all packets lost, either the two are not really wirelessly connected or else there is a 3rd party firewall blocking LAN access. If you got replies in one direction but all packets lost in the other, you know you have a firewall issue. If you got replies in both directions, continue with that article.
