    I installed a wireless PCI card (b) on my second WindowsXP PC system. It
    shows it is connected to my main computer (using Linksys wireless router)
    wireless router signal, and shows bytes sent but 0 bytes received. Wireless
    router has encryption turned off. What am I doing or not doing wrong? Very
    frustrating, wireless seems very hard to set up.

    I also am able to choose between Infrastructure or AdHoc mode for network
    mode on the wireless card, neither of which I understand. If I choose Adhoc
    mode I do not see any data sent or received as that is greyed out as
    automatic or unavailable.

    could be a Firewall problem.

    have you set up each systems Firewall settings to allow the other through.

    I have the same problem, however my OS is Win2kPro, no firewall. I can
    install my D-Link card and the computer works fine. When I try to use the
    computers built in wireless, I can see the communication link up, but no
    packets received. The network is not encrypted.
    At home, on my encrypted network, the internal wireless works just fine.
    Anyone have an idea what the problem might be? The only difference seems to
    be the encryption vs. no encryption.

  6. I have a linksys wireless LAN aswell. What's exactly the problem? Do you
    want to use a shared internetconnection or have a network aswell?
