Default Wireless Router

I have received a LINKSYS Model WRT54GS-BP router. My main computer has XP
for the OS, the laptop has a D-LINK DWL-G650 wire less card buss adapter. My
question is this. Will ME and XP work together? I am sorry if this not clear,
I am not very good at this.

Thanks for any help!!!

ME and XP work together just fine in a network.

Anything else you'd like to know?


This was helpful because the Circuit City guys didn't think Windows M.E.
would communicate with a "G" router card. Wanted to tap into the Wife's
internet for online coarses


I'm not sure what you mean by "G" router card.

If the Windows ME computer has a wired Ethernet adapter, you can
network it by connecting a cable to one of the router's LAN ports.

It can be hard to find a wireless networking adapter that works with
Windows ME. Many manufacturers have stopped supporting everything
older than Windows XP. According to the Netgear web site, these
wireless networking adapters work with Windows ME:

WG511 PC Card
WG111 USB 2.0
