Wireless network help

I bougth a D-link wireless router tonight, the PC works fine connected thru it to the cable modem, but I can not get the stupid laptop to enable the wireless adapter. It is a Dell Inspiron 600M, with the Intel wireless adapter, 802.11b
I'm stick like chuck right now???
The laptop still can connect thru it's dialup acct, but while at home I want to use the cable modem's power, not Earthlink @ 56Kbps!

I went thru the setup on the Dlink, but the Dell does not see anything when I tell it to Let Windowes configure the wireless adapter.

Any idea's what the hell I need to do???

Could it possible be a driver problem? Is this a seperate wireless card or a built in one?

Well I'll be a monkeys uncle, I spent 2 hours trying to figure this thing out last night, this morning I turn on the laptop and it starts working??? Does it take that long for the wireless network to start communicating?

Hell no, it should have started working instantly. No idea on that one Rob.

Hey, you still running those X10 camera's? I've read that you can pick up the signal from the X10 camera's through an 802.11b card. Lemme know what you find out.

Still got the X10's. Wouldn't matter if someone drove by and picked them up though, all they would see is themselves, mine are pointed at the front door and the driveway/street.
I'll see if I can get the laptop to pick anything up.

What I was wondering is if you can monitor the camera's through the network like on your laptop or something.

They do have some software that allows you to do that, fomr anywhere. You hook the receiver to the computer, then tell it how often to take a snapshot. It's not streaming video, but I had it set to take a pic every 5 seconds before and it was pretty cool. Wireless should catch it streaming.
