Question about D-Link 802.11g Wireless Router WBR-1310 (WBR1310)
My Vista laptop connects to the Internet only if it is physically connected to the modem, how can I connect without having it and the laptop in the same room?
In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.
However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly
If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.
If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.
Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).
