If I have understood your problem correctly, when viewing your "Network Places", there are two icons, one representing your Wireless network adaptor and another one called "Internet Gateway", which when disabled, you loose your connection ?

If I haven't understood your problem correctly, can you please provide us with more information?

As Chris said, a little more detail would be helpful.. however I'm guessing you're using Windows XP internet connection sharing..

if its working with the gateway icon there, then why not just leave it that way ?

Good day Richelle,

<1> Internet gateway and ICS shuld be disable if you're using wireless adapter from Linksys, If necessary, you can uninstall and delete them.

btw, are you using using WinXP? if yes, you should be using wireless zero config utility on your WinXP. And are you using a wireless router from Linksys as well?

<2> If you're running WinXP, on your system tray(on the bottom right corner of your screen,) you should see a double computer icon there, right click on that one and click on view available wireless network, you should suppose to see Linksys there under available network if you're using a wireless router from Linksys as well, highlight linksys and click connect on the bottom. Sometime you need to check -allow me to connect ..... and after that, when you point over your mouse on the double computer, you should have your wireless connection status and it should say connected and with a signal status. If this doesn't work, give us a call
