Thanks for your help setting the network parameters.
Correcting the wireless gateway IP setting on the SB allowed me to connect.

I find however, the connection doesn't work for very long. It runs for a
few/20 minutes than losses the connection. It then doesn't re-connect. I
have to unplug the SB and reboot the PC to get connected again. I will try
searching for troubleshooting tips on the issue of improving the connection
and using the blocking function, password and encryption.

Thanks Ian,
You are correct. One of the settings I made on the SB is:

I didn't know that I should make this entry the IP of the WiFi card on the

Wireless Gateway IP

Does anyone know of a:

Also, for a wired Ad Hoc Network and the SB, is a null (wires crossed)
network cable required or do you use a regular ethernet cable?

Yes you do. This line means that anything for will be routed by
your windows box through the adaptor:

What about the Wireless Gateway setting on the SB? I use DHCP on a wired
network here, so I haven't had to do this myself, but the help files say

The equivalent of "router" here is "wireless gateway". You showed this as
being set to earlier. Can you change that to the IP address of your
XP box?
