    Hi all-

    I'm having some serious trouble getting my network card to work with
    my XP laptop. I have a home desktop pc running XP pro, and I used to
    have an old IBM laptop running windows 2000, all i have to do is
    conect the wireless router, and plug the card in, voila! Then when i
    got a new job, with a new computer running XP pro, i cannot get the
    card to work at all. The wireless network connection icon will show
    up on the task bar (right lower corner, whatever that's called), and
    if i click on it, it will say "Invalid IP address", but the status
    says conncected. I tried calling netgear, and make the long story
    short, they are helpless. Can someone please help me out??

    It's called a Network Connection ICON that will show that traffic is
    happening for the connection when it kind of flashes. For a wireless
    connection, it will show the signal strength as well.
    Well, if you enter CMD in the Start/Button/Run to go to DOS and enter
    IPconfig /all, what IP does the machine have?

    Did you use the Network Wizard for the connection and do you have the
    Bridge Icon with the ICON for the Network Connection there as well when
    you double-click on the Network Icon in the job tray that takes you to
    LAN Connection Screen?

    I think this has to do with my hotfix Q815485. Unfortunately, this
    computer is company owned, and I dont' know what in the hell they did
    with it, i was unable to remove this hotfix. They gave me a copy
    error while running the add/remove program icon. Copy cannot find the
    file ndis.sys; and i ran a search it was indeed in that location...
    so, i"m very puzzled. Any other way I can by pass this WPA? Or can i
    manually remove the program without going thru the wizard? Thanks!
