I recently bought a new Linksys wireless router and after setting it up with basic WEP security, I tried to logon from my laptop and was successful!

I checked my settings on the wireless router to make sure I didn’t accidentally setup certificate security, but found no such thing.
Also, since I was able to connect from my laptop with no problem, it led me to believe it was something wrong with my desktop.
[begin heated debate...] You don't need to buy the more expensive Windows XP Advanced Server or Windows 2000 Server to run IIS.
However, the XP Professional standard EULA (license) states that at most 10 computers may connect to your machine for IIS, File/Printing services, and remote access.
