I recently set up a home network using a linksys router. The desktop is
wired into the router.
I have two laptops. Well, I set everything up and it works perfectly. The
first time using it, I had to enter the passphrase. I did it for each laptop
and they connected fine and they continue to work fine.
I then brought home a laptop from work.
When I search for connections, it correctly identifies my network (call it
MEL). But when I try and connect, it will not. It says Searching For Mel. I
can't get it to do anything else. I never get to the passphrase request.
It must be something with my setup as I can take this work laptop to a
nearby coffee shop and it connects just fine there.
Incidentally, my desktop and laptops are all XP Home and the work laptop has
XP Pro an d it uses Odyssey Client.
