    I am trying to establish a link between IE6 and my Linksys wireless card in
    my laptop. I have got the linksys part to recognize my home network to
    access the internet but when I try to go to the home page it cannot find it.

    I don't know what to do at this point. I have tried going into IE settings
    and make a new connection but it does not work. I need some guidence on how
    to make this work. I have always used the detect settings but it doesn't
    seem to be detecting anything.

    I am running W2K Pro and a Linksys 2.4 Wireless b (model No. WPC11) router.
    This a a really old computer and I broke the other wireless device, which
    worked perfectly, and now I am stuck.

    Thanks for any assistance.

  2. Hi
    I am not sure what you are trying to do.
    If you can get to the Internet then your Browser (IE) and the Wireless card
    are working together as they should.
    Otherwise please explain in practical terms what "the linksys part to
    recognize my home network to access the internet" means.

    The wireless card picks - up my home network but when I go to the internet it
    will not go anyway I cannot even get my home page. It is like a setting is
    missing in the explorer dealing with the network. I am trying to figure out
    which setting it is.

    thanks
