  1. I have two computers: A and B

    A:
    - Gateway MX6956 Laptop
    - XP Media Center Edition, Version 2002, SP 2
    - Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

    B:
    - HP Pavilion Desktop
    - XP Home Edition, Version 2002, SP 2
    - Belkin 802.11g Network Adapter

    I use Comcast cable highspeed internet and am connected through a wireless router (Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router) and a cable modem.

    A is able to connect to the network and browse the internet just fine.
    Here is A's "ipconfig /all" information:

    B connects to the wireless network sporadically, but even when it does connect it is unable to browse the internet.
    Here is B's "ipconfig /all" information:

    Under the Device Manager>Belkin 802.11g Network Adapter>Properties it says "This device is working properly"

    Can someone please help me with this issue?

    Thanks.

    Oh, and this all started after I set up my wireless network to share files between computers.

    forget sharing for the moment; your connection to the ISP is independent of
    sharing. all systems must be able to see each other and the internet first.

    system Xibalba is just fine -- leave it alone

    system IansComputer has no IP config; go to the wireless adaptor
    and enable DHCP. Then use your View Network Connections, to find
    your router's SSID; dbl-clink on it to connect.
    once connected, you can THEN use ipconfig /all to see how it connected.
    Before a connection is made, it will continue to look just as it is now.

    Get this running correctly and THEN we can take up sharing issues :)
