I have the Actiontec M1424-WR router. I am trying to set up a home network with a Desktop on XP and a Laptop on Vista.
I have been able to creat a network if the Desktop and Laptop are both connected to the Router with Cat5 Cables.
I can not set up a network if I have the Desktop connected via the Cat5 and the Laptop using the Wireless Card.
I've called VZ, won't help. I've emailed Actiontec, couldn't help. I've Googled etc. I'm stumped! This can't be a unique situation.
If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.
By Default the Actiontec will have Wireless Enabled with WEP Protection.
The Network Name (SSID) and Passcode (WEP Key) are printed on a sticker which is on the Router.
I do not have a Vista Machine up and running at the moment so I can not give you exact instructions to do the conenction. If you do a search on the forum you may find the connection instructions.
