    Setup wireless

    I have a wireless cable modem (SMC Networks) attached to one computer. I have
    another computer that I want to have access to that internet. The second
    computer has a linksys wireless adapter (Linksys Wireless G, USB network
    adapter). I can get the second computer to see the wireless internet and
    connnect ( it downloaded a bunch of updates for windows) but it won't load
    any websites. What am I doing wrong? Both are running Windows XP. I tried to
    set up a home network thinking that would help but no luck.
    Any help?
    Please.

    Check to see if the SMC cable modem is a router and not just a
    wireless modem.

    Are you saying that the 2nd computer *can* (did) connect to Windows
    Update but can't connect to any other website? What error message do you
    get?

    Are you sure that the wireless network you see is *your* wireless network?
