Need a wireless router for my talk talk broadband

I recently bought a laptop with Vista on it.I want to get a wireless router for my Talk Talk broadband but when i emailed them to enquire i got no response and i was wondering if there was a way i could buy one from somewhere else so that i can access broadband on my laptop. I have no idea what i need or what the best way is. Talk talk seem disinterested with my enquiry for a wireless router. Can anyone help as i am still having to use my XP PC to access broadband.........:-(

    I think i need your advice again and you will probably laugh :-( ! I have bought the Linksys router you recommended and have installed it and it says there is a connection there but when i click on the internet button it keeps saying 'cannot connect' even though it says i am already connected?? Somewhere i think i have gone wrong big time but i cant work it out but i know i got confused when it said to connect the internet cable to the modem etc. I think i am having a bad day ha ha.

You could use any brand wireless router with your broadband service for a wifi signal for your laptop or any wireless internet to any device that is compatible for it. You first need to make sure your laptop has built in wireless or if it needs an adapter(ex. Wireless notebook adapter, USB Adapter). and if its built in then all you would need to buy is a wireless router(Linksys has a really nice and user friendly setup. Model:WRT54G).

    Your welcome, The best thing to do is get that router since you already have the built in wireless and follow linksys connection wizard disk and set it up that way. It will setup everything you need to have your laptop wireless and any other thing you may want to connect to make wireless

I recently bought a linksys wireless router i've


Make sure your wireless feature is turned on on the computer. There may be a switch on the edge of the computer somewhere, you don't say what kind of computer it is.

Find the wireless connection wizard on your computer and run it. Find it in your network folder in the control panel.

If this is too much, post a comment to this question and we will back up and start over.

BTW, if your laptop has a ethernet outlet (looks like a big phone jack), you can wire your laptop to your router.

I want to help you with this problem

thanks

Do you just want to add the WinVista compute to the wireless network?

You can try this steps

1. Make sure that the wireless switch is on, on the WinVista laptop.
2. At the bottom right handside of your screen where you have the time look for the two computer icon, right click it and go to connect to a network. On the screen that will pop-up you will see the wireless networks around you. Just select your network and connect to it.

Just reply to this post in case you will still have a problem.

I have a Philips Wireless Router SNA5630NS/05


Go fix your portting settings in your router.
Now do you want to gain access the laptop by loggin into it?
If so, go to VNC.com and download one of them. (Virtual Network Computer) You will have to install VNC on both computers. Then use VNC viewer to witre the ip of your laptop. Then press enter, you should gain access to your laptop wirelessly.

But you have to do portforwarding in the router and other small stuffs to make ths work.

Drivers 4 Linksys BEFW11S4 ver. 4


Your wired network adapter will talk to a wired router without a driver for the router on your computer. Your wireless adapter likewise will talk to your wireless router without a driver for the wireless router on your computer. Your wired and wireless adapters however do require drivers and the wireless adapter can require configuration. Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer so I can learn about your wireless adapter and we can work to get it connected to the router.

Do you currently have your router connected to your internet service providers connection and do you have another wired or wireless computer successfully using this device to access the internet?

Connecting two laptops using Netgear 834G


If its just a router and not a modem router, go into the routers settings and make sure DHCP is enabled to give each pc an automatic IP address and ensure wireless is enabled if using wireless adapters. Next go to the properties of your network card and on the TCP/IP select properties and ensure obtain IP address automatically is ticked. You must also set up using the XP network wizard and ensure file and printer sharing is set up through both pc's.
