All I have under the Local Area Connection Properties tab, JohnC, is ' Client for Microsoft Networks ' beyond which I cannot proceed. It is checked and cannot be unchecked.
However, after some little time an IP address is obtained so it must be being obtained automatically. Unfortunately, I am still getting ' Little or no connectivity ' and the TP-Link USB is not connecting.
I have tried a different TP-Link USB and that does not connect either. My other machines, one with a TP-Link USB connector and two with TP-Link PCI connectors connect through the router with no problems.
I have the Windows XP Pro installation disc but I'd rather repair this installation- if it needs it- than do a fresh install.
