How do i connect my wireless laptop

Hi, I am on telewest/virgin broadband, I have 2 computers wired to an asus-530g pocket router, they are working fine. I have just purchased a HP laptop and am trying to get it to work on the wireless, but i just cant get it working. I have done the obvious like switching on the laptop wireless button. I have also connected my internet wire from the asus-530g to the lap top and it works fine, but not with wireless. the air button light is on green on the router. Any ideas what to do next please?

Re: How do i connect my wireless laptop

If your router is from Telewest / Virgin you answer may be here.

Warning this may not specifically match your router or computer's adapter card,

If not then substituting configuration information you or someone else has entered into your router in place of the information from the label may be your answer.

IF not leave a comment here and I will try to provide additional steps. Please let me know if you have configured your router before that will help.

One PC will not connect to Router and therefore Internet.

Sounds to me like the problem is related to the PC hardware. Please check the following in your PC:

- Network card is properly working
- Network cable connecting to the PC is properly working

I am a very untechnical person and I bought a wireless G Router thinking I could connect it very simply and make my wired broadband wireless. Unfortunately the modem I have, which was sent to me by Virgin...

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.

Cannot finish connecting

Hi fozzy211 - Please don't rate this 'til were finished. You've got two things going on. You said it's telling you to check the cables and then you say it's saying the router isn't from Verizon. Is it both? Are the cables hooked up correctly to your knowledge? We can fool Verizon's system. Let me know if you actually have two problems. For now I would only hook up one pc via wired until it's working. I'll await your response. Thanks.

Virgin broadband to laptop

Try setting a static IP on your computer with the DNS provided by the modem- to set this up contact Virgin and have them help you setup a static IP(or if you know how to set static IP on the computer use the same IP information you getting from the DHCP).

Do you have DHCP enabled on your PC? Sounds like you are not getting the IP address.
