To use a laptop computer wirelessly a few things are required.1) make sure that the router/Access Point (AP) has the proper connections (i.e. power, data access such as ADSL or or other broadband internet connection, and good placement of the AP so that the signal goes to the locations that you want to get connected wirelessly. 2) Make sure that you have a power option where you want to connect wirelessly (either a good strong battery or a place to plug in the power cord). 3) Make sure that all appropreate security concerns are addressed (such as proper signal encoding to guard against someone using your connection to do something illegal, or that the signal does not overlap with some one else's to where there is interferance for you or them).

For specific help with making the connections or the specific software settings please post more details (computer operating system, router make and model, and connection details). Good luck and welcome to the unwired.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

Youe broadband router is working ok with the broadband cable.So it is configured with the broadband cable.Now,to work with the wireless internet,you have to configured the wi-fi router to work internet.You can see the wi-fi connection but unless & untill you will configure wi-fi router it must not work or if before it was working with the wi-fi then you can check the wi-fi router setting because it might change by mistake.Surely it will work after configurating wi-fi router.

Need a wireless router for my talk talk broadband


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).

I'm thinking you have the ADSL modem supplied by Virgin with only the telephone line port and an USB port on the back that goes to the computer.

In the case above. You need to buy a wireless router with a USB port connection. Or something like a Linksys WAG54G which is an ADSL and wireless router all-in-one.

My Wireless internet card don't work


i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.


Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
