Did your ISP Boingo supply you with a DSL or cable modem with a built-in wireless router? If only a DSL or cable modem is supplied and you wish to connect to the Internet by wireless then you need to connect a wireless router to this DSL or cable modem.
You can connect to the Internet using a LAN cable from your laptop to the DSL or cable modem. If your laptop as a built-in wireless card you can to the Internet via the wireless router. If you laptop does not have a built-in wireless card then you can install a PCMCIA wireless card into the card slot of your laptop to the Internet via a wireless connection.
This printer has a lan connection built-in, you can connect this printer to a LAN port on your wireless router. You need to configure the IP address of the printer to work in the same IP address range that the wireless router uses so the printer can communicate with your network.
LAN port #1 on router <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop computer
LAN port #2 on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on laptop computer
If the router has built-in "wireless" capability, then use the desktop computer's connection to the router to "configure" the wireless adapter, i.e., pick an SSID, and establish a password, and then your laptop computer can use the SSID/password to connect "wirelessly" to the router.
try to go in control panel then find the sounds and audio devies and also in network connection and if you find the 2 properties try to configure out if the sounds and network are installed properly if not installed the sounds and network connection through your installation cds
It might be that the Operating System is preventing connection to the router because:
the network is unsecured. look for the "Connect Anyway button";
the Amilo's WiFi is set to a manually configured IP address, pls try "Obtain an IP address automatically" in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties of the Wireless Network Connection of the Control Panel/Network Connections;
it maybe that your Amilo has its own WiFi configuration and if so, you should disable the OS to manage your wireless connection.
Incidentally, you could try downloading a third party Wireless network detection software that is to verify that the Amilo's wireless card is working and that it can sense the Wireless router. An example would be NetStumbler.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back exact model number of the Amilo laptop, how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
If a LAN connected PC will not work while a wireless laptop is connected you need to go into advanced router setup, bandwidth management, and untick the three boxes labeled "active" to disable the band width management. Easy!
