Need help with D-Link DWL-G122 set up


Hi I'm new here and hope I'm posting in the right place. I recently had a virus on my desktop computer and had to do a system restore and that meant adding my Motorola SBG 900 wireless modem again I did get that to work and is the only way I can get online now b/c I can't get the D-Link DWL-G122 to work with my other desk top and can't get online on my lap top I'm getting error message on lap top "the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network".

My other desk top says that I have a very good status with the signal but can't get on it either since they are both out of warrenty Im not sure where to go from here I do remember when I very first set up the sbg 900 the woman had me put a password in the set up some where but after reading the users manual can't remember how to get there to do that? I hope someone can get me pointed in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

To find out the viriant of windows that you are running goto start menu >> and left click running aon my computer and select properties from the leftclick context menu.

As far as figuring out what version of your linux Distribution of choice you are currently.

Here is the help for the uname command

\
Code:
uname --help
Usage: uname [OPTION]...
Print certain system information.  With no OPTION, same as -s.

  -a, --all                print all information, in the following order,
                             except omit -p and -i if unknown:
  -s, --kernel-name        print the kernel name
  -n, --nodename           print the network node hostname
  -r, --kernel-release     print the kernel release
  -v, --kernel-version     print the kernel version
  -m, --machine            print the machine hardware name
  -p, --processor          print the processor type or "unknown"
  -i, --hardware-platform  print the hardware platform or "unknown"
  -o, --operating-system   print the operating system
      --help     display this help and exit
      --version  output version information and exit

As she stated, she's using Windows XP.

Glad you figured it out, Linda...but posting a Windows question on a Linux forum, won't usually get you alot of help, much like posting a Linux question on a Windows forum......
