    I am setting up a new computer in our house. The new computer is a Gateway with XP Media Center Edition. I have the network all set up on our other computers and it all works fine...we have two other computers and two laptops working on the network. I took a linksys adapter from one of the working computers and put it on the new gateway computer. i installed the disc and plugged in the adapter. it says it can't see an access point???

    Can someone PLEASE help me. i put in the right SSID.

    I am pretty sure that the drivers are just not working...in the device manager i have a ? under other devices - usb device. i don't have the wireless connection icon in the taskbar. just a greyed out linksys monitor icon. I've read other people have had problems with the xp media center edition and their linksys. is there a driver somewhere that fixes this?

    I am DESPERATE for some help...spent an hour talking to linksys people and just came to the conclusion its the computer ???? Would soooo appreciate some help.

    i've done everything i know to do.

    one thing i'm not sure about is the wireless zero config. the linksys guy told me to start it and put it on automatic...so that is what it is on now.

    Please Help!! Thanks in advance!!!

    Does Windows detect there is a new hardware and proceed to ask you to install the driver?
