I always get a bit confused when configuring or setting up a LAN on XP. Maybe on win7, too. My confusion arises because there's apparently two LANs but the computer never talks about this, never puts it that way. There's the wireless network. That's a Lan, surely? And there's the Microsoft Lan that I might be trying to set up. More often I'm having problems with it and keep getting directed to Lan setup pages via control panel. Like just today I couldn't access the workgroup and I kept getting to pages wanting me to create a lan or join a lan or configure a lan or something.. But the wireless network was all the time fine. The computer was accessing the wireless point and via it the internet. How am I to think of this? Just go ahead configuring MS Networks and don't even think about the wireless aspect? Ignore it? Or what? It was different when it was all ethernet. There was then only the one Lan. The physical Lan was the software Lan, all the same. I stumble through and manage to get things going but it would be nice if I had a clear rational understanding of what is going on. Can anyone help with that?
