    Widows xp sharing wireless connection with Win 7?

    I have a netgear router with a wired internet connection on a Win XP desktop. I wanted to use a win 7 desktop to connnect wireless using a usb wireless adapter to the win 7 pc. Troubling shooting tells me to check cable.

    Why doesn't win 7 find the wireless adapter? Where in win 7 do you get the option to show password?

    What is the default ip address for netgear setup? Doing this for a cousin and thought it would be no problem. My latop shows five networks avaliable. They are secure.

    Unless your Netgear Gateway does not have Wifi, you would need an Access Point connected to the Netgear. It does help if you post the model # of the Netgear Gateway.

    I have wireless access on my laptop with this router. I will get back to you on the model. Only 6 months old.
