Cannot connect laptop to broadband

I have purchased an Advent 7115 laptop and cannot get it to connect wireless to my orange broadband. I have tried everything and it still will not work. Orange have tested my broadband and have said that it is working ok and PC world have tested my laptop and said that it is working ok. However, they will not work together. Please help as I am losing all patience with it.

You need to set up a wireless connection "profile", which can be selected from your wifi software icon in the bottom right corner of menu bar. Be sure to select the proper encryption method (WEP 64, WEP 128, WAP, etc.) and then enter your encryption key and save the profile before it will connect. All these details are determined by the ISP, in this case, Orange. This information must be obtained from Oranage and entered precisely, because it is all designed to prevent other people (neighbors near you) from using your wifi connection. Also, you must make sure you are not working near large metal obstacles (refrigerators, metal building panels, thick concrete reinforced with metal) or radiation devices (radio transmitters, microwave ovens). Also, large volumes of water can disturbs/prevent wifi access). Even a glass of coke, placed adjacent to the laptop's antenna, will severely impair wifi access (or totally prevent wifi access if the glass is in a direct line between your laptop and the wifi base station). Thick glass windows or sliding doors are also a known wifi inhibitor. Locate your laptop where there are no such materials or devices between you and the base station.

The advent 7201 can it go on internet or do i need to upgrade it


You do not need to upgrade to connect to the Internet.
First you need to decide what type of broadband/Internet serviceyou require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network which uses the mobile/cell phone network and can beseparate or combine with your cell phone account
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include amodem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service and yourlaptop has a wireless card then you can also connect to the Internet at WiFihot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access theInternet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to checkthe service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to checkwith the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and thecost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed themonthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider,their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installationCD.

My sister and I both have Advent 7105 laptops and we have just installed sky broadband and wireless. The wireless connection is not working on our laptops and it keeps saying that its the incorrect network...


make sure every protocol is same with working one. If you cannot figure out, Uninstall and setup again, You probably missing some point that keeps you away from wireless. check name SSID and password.
If one of the laptop is upto date, WHich is you may need to do windows upgrade, it will solved the problem. Try.
