Hello,

I recently had to reinstall my operating system on a second computer that used a wireless adapter to connect to the wireless connection to the internet that's set up on my main computer. Before reinstalling the operating system (windows XP) there weren't any problems. Now, the second pc connects for about five seconds, then drops the connection, then connects and drops the connection. This continues and I have no idea how to fix it.
