Question about Uniden WNR2304P 802.11b Wireless 4-Port Router with Wireless PCMCIA Network
Hi, I have had an old laptop from an ex-employer cleared of passwrods etc and fitted with a wireless card. Whilst I was able (after a bit of a struggle) to connect my daughters brand new compaq I have been unable to get on to the internet on the old laptop. I am a computer cretin I admit but this is driving me mad. Anyone got any helpful ideas?
OK, I see. No wonder it has been tricky compared with the laptop! I'll do what I can to help, though I am more 'helpful neighbour' than expert here. :)
First, I'd want to double check the adapter is installed and working. The Device Manager should help.
In the Control Panel, click the 'System' icon. On the System Properties box, click the Hardware tab. You should see a 'Device Manager' icon on the screen: click that if necessary to bring up a list of hardware devices (see screenshot here). Assuming there is a 'network adapters' icon on the right hand screen, click any '+' signs you might see to view which network adapters are installed on the laptop.
If you do see your wireless adapter there, are there any red crosses or yellow exclamation marks to be seen? Can you right click and select 'properties' ...if so, does Windows show any messages about the adapter?
If everything is OK, you will need to connect to your network using Dlink's own utility, which you should find in Start > Programs. I can't be more specific without the model number, but hope this moves things another step forward.
However, if you don't see the wireless adaptor, or there is a problem with this or anything else....please come back to Fixya...
