I cannot connect this router to my wireless laptop i am with virgin broadband the desktop pc works with cable into back of pc but cannot see laptop on network


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.

Broadband connection


You should find the manual that comes with the Router. It will have good instructions on the details to configure this.

Basically you will use your browser on your desktop to connect to a web page within your nb504 router.
You will turn on wireless connections and enable security plus give your wireless network a name.
Once that is done you will configure security on your laptop to connect to your wireless network.

Don't skip the security bit or your neighbors will be able to use your internet connection for free.

The default settings in modem devices are really good these days so follow the recommendations in your router manual and you should be able to figure it out.

If you can't find your router manual you should be able to download it from Netcomm.

Hope this helps
