Thanks to everyone that gave some advice. I finally solved this
stupid problem. The short version is that the "profile" of my anti-
virus software was causing the problem!!!!
I have another wireless laptop that connected to my Linkstation just
fine.....it is also running XP, SP2 but us using McAfee's software.
My laptop is running Trend Micro's PC-Cillan w/the "wireless
profile". Once I changed my profile to "Home or Home Network",
everything worked flawlessly!!!! Who knew?!!!
I remember having this problem before where the PC in the "wireless"
profile could not see the other Workgroup computers. Changed it
to "home-home/network" although it was running wirelessly &
everything worked. (arrgh....frustrating but solved)
