    I have a notebook computer with Win ME on it that I am
    trying to connect through a Lynksys Wireless-G adapter. I
    have two XP machines wired in successfuly to the Lynksys
    router (they see each other and their shared folders,
    etc.) (By the way, I only have a dial up connection to the
    internet, if it matters. I'm not trying to share the
    internet connection, only the files/folders between
    computers.)
    When I try to set the network up on the portable with ME
    through the Networking wizard, everytime I hit <next>
    after the computer name screen, I get a blue screen of
    death saying THERE HAS BEEN AN ERROR...PRESS ANY KEY TO
    CONTINUE.
    This means the portable computer doesn't know there's a
    network out there waiting for it....
    I have downloaded all updates for ME from the microsoft
    update site.

    Any thoughts, anyone????
