Hi. I recently purchased a Wi-Fi Connection Point that connects to your USB Ports. I installed the included drivers as well as the program that is supposed to go with it, ZDWLan. I cannot get it to work. It never recieves an IP Address. I've tried this site http://uk.codejunkies.com/support_article_...5&ProdId=26, which I believe is mentioned on another thread on these very forums. They include no assistance to this problem. The problem goes as follows:

I read the page seeing that it says I need to make the driver share the connection with my internet connection. The only thing under Network Connections (WinXP) That I can see that allows me to share is the driver for my Ethernet Card, so when I try to make it share, I get this error:
---------------------------
Network Connections
---------------------------
An error occurred while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled.



Internet Connection Sharing cannot be enabled.

A LAN connection is already configured with the IP address

that is required for automatic IP addressing.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

I then read at the bottom of the page, to try and disable the DHCP server. I did this, and still get the same error (but this time after a long pause).

I then tried disabling my card, making it share, then enabling it. It works, but then neither device has an IP address, and I cannot get one. (Limited or no connectivity)

I've tried anything and everything I can think of besides what that site says, and I cannot get any good results. Can someone assist me with this problem?

I have a few questions.
The modem is connected to the computer you have the Wireless Access Point plugged into?
What brand and model Wireless Access Point are you using?
Do you have a router in your LAN?
What is the make and model of your modem, and is it a cable or ADSL modem?

My modem connects to my router, which then connects to every computer in my home.
The device is Sagem XG-760N
My Modem is a Comcast Model, im not sure what Model it is though, it doesnt really say, but its Cable.

I looked at the device, and see a MAC address, I'm going to try adding it as its own IP on my router, ill see if it has any effect.

Edit: Its APPARENTLY connected after I set its IP address and Subnet Mask manually using the Router IP address that I assigned for it, but I cannot connect using my DS or PSP. They detect it when I search for a connection, but it never actually connects when I test.
