    I have an iMac and iBook both connected to an airbase station. I would like to connect my pc to it as well. I have config'd my pc with the wireless card and getting good signal, everything seems good, But...

    I cannot get my pc to recognize it when opening the browser or other net required apps. I have gone through all the internet options in the browser for setting up an internet connection.

    If anyone has done this before I sure would appreciate a solution.

    As I understand, AirPort Basestaion is the standard WiFi compatible. I think the problem you are having is the PC's network setup. Win does NOT recognize base stations automatically like Mac does. You need to create a new TCP/IP connection when you connect to the station for the first time.

    I guess you are familiar with them? Well, I'm not. But I know the setup is kinda confusing, that much I know :D

    Have fun with the pretty Windows!

    Oh sorry, your PC is receiving the signal all right!
    Uh, then it's totally your PC's network setup...
