    Default Wireless ntwrk & XP connectivity Problem

    Hi:
    I have a strange wireless network problem. Just visiting
    daughter's and trying to set up our laptop from home to
    access their 802.11b wireless network. Have tried several
    access cards (USB & PCMCIA). After loading new drvrs, LAN
    monitor initially shows a dynamic address received, but
    the is no real WWW connectivity. All attempts to reach WWW
    fail. If computer is re-booted the dynamic address comes
    up strange & invalid, but network shows wireless link is
    OK, but still no www connection.
    The same cards and network work OK on same computer
    running W98 (using it now). Any suggestions? This is
    really weird.

    Thanks for any help.
