    netgear ethernet modem and router, DG834G. But the physical connection isnt the problem, its the fact you cant create network for sharing files etc on 2k with wirless.

    nil i think your a bit confused.

    XP introduced zero config for wireless adaptors (as the standard wasn't around when 2k was made).

    in 2k, wireless adaptors are presented as "physical" adaptors. As such it makes no difference to 2k for file sharing.

    you might be finding that you've got "simple file sharing" enabled on the XP machine. to do this in explorer goto

    tools -> Folder Options -> View
    then uncheck use simple filesharing.
    throw new ArgumentException (String, String, Exception)
