The information panel for the card is different than when it is installed in XP, as per my other laptop, and in this panel it is showing that I have a connection to the router but it will not connect to web. It just tells me the connection I am trying to make does not exist.
I see two possible problems:
- Your wireless network is encrypted (as it should be) but the Win2k tool for your card is not set up (or does not support) that encryption.
Win2k does *not* support WPA/WPA2 on its own.
Either the tools from the WiFi card need to support WPA/WPA2 or you need a third party supplement. (McAfee (?) had such a wpa supplement that was free, but is not available anymore on their homepage. But you can find it elsewehere on the web.)
- Youe wireless card is set to use a static IP which does not correspond to the wireless network.
If so: Switch the card to use DHCP.
