netsetup disk no go on my me laptop



Hello

Hope I'm in the right place to post this.

I have set a wireless network between my xp desktop and ME laptop I can use the internet on both I'm using Buffalo router whr-hp-g54 and usb adapter wli-u2-kg54-a1.

Both computers switched on connected to internet I have canon printer on.

But I'm have trouble running the netsetup.exe floppy on the laptop.

Here is what I did.

I did the netsetup disk on my xp desktop went to my ME laptop put the disk in clicked on my computer -clicked floppy drive double clicked netsetup.exe it starts then it says
welcome to the network setup wizard before continuing windows must install some support files on your computer and possibly restart your computer if you using xp the wizard will start immediately do you want to continue.

You will be prompted to restart your computer if you use a floppy disk or cd remove from drive and then click ok.

you must restart your computer before the new setting will take effect. Do you want to restart your computer.

The computer restarts then the welcome to the network wizard starts the desktop is blank so there is no icons or anything no taskbar along the bottom of the screen.

If I click on cancel the laptop loads up normally I can use the internet then.

Is there any way round this?

I suspect that your problem may actually be with ME and not the disk. A manual config may be the best way around it. If both computers can see the 'net, you are most of the way there. What are you hoping to achieve?
