i'm having a problem with my wireless network. i'v read up on this, but i'm missing something. i have a cable internet connection running to the ISP's modem then cabled into a linksys wireless-g broadband router 802.11g (model # wrt54g) then cabled back into the machine i'm using to post this (no problems here). this set up was done so my brother-in law could work on his laptop when he was visiting and it works fine for that. i'm now trying to expand this network to another desktop i have. i bought and installed a linksys wireless-g pci adapter 802.11g (model # wmp54g) in my second machine. this is where my problem starts. i start the machine and it shows an excellent signal, but it can't acquire an IP address. it searches and searches and searches and searches, you get the ideal. what i'm i missing?
Thanks in advance for your help!
p.s. the 1st machine is running xp media center sp2, the second machine (the 1 i'm trying to add to the network) is running xp home sp2
