Someone PLEASE help me...I'm beginning to get desperate. I'm not computer smart by any means so bear with me. I've got a Trendnet TEW-423pi wireless card, installed it on my XP machine, and ran the little utility program....but now I have NO idea how to make it talk to my wireless router. Also, the booklet shows the card's utility program as having seven options tabs, I only get three. I visited the manufacturers website and did what they said to no avail. Someone please point me in the right direction, and by that I don't mean reccommending better cards, its the most I could afford.

Thanks in advance...I'm so helpless without you all.

We will need a litle more information. Which service pack for XP do you have? Which router are you using, and have to preformed firmware updates on the router? Please describe your LAN, Modem> Router> Hub (if any)> Computer(s) (and OS of each and how they are connected). Will your computer connect to your LAN via wire? Have you checked your Device Manager? Is the NIC enabled?
