I recently set up a wireless home network with a Linksys AP/router. In the past few days, I had been attempting to enable file/printer sharing between a Athlon/Windows 2000 desktop machine and my Win 98 SE notebook over the network. That hasn't been successful, but the more critical problem is that neither USB device attached to the Win 2k machine can find a connection. The installation of the network initially wasn't a problem, as the USB port had been successfully used to sync a Handspring PDA less than a week prior to my tinkering with file/print share. The USB hubs and controllers show as "working properly" on the Device Manager. Is it possible that my fooling with Windows-Windows networking could have messed up the USB ports? Is there an easy way for me confirm that the hardware itself is OK?
