Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Telkom ADSL 5102G modem connected to a Windows XP desktop and had a laptop that connected wireless to the internet.Now I have bought a laptop with Windows Vista that cannot .It sees the network
but says it is unidentified and only connects locally.It then shows that it is a public network,but I go to Customize and change it to Home,but when I try to connect again,it defaults to Public,therefore cannot access internet.
I just got it all working [new notebook running Vista], connecting to the net via the telkom 5102G - with a PC running XP connecting via LAN.
The 5102G comes ready configured with a network key / code [stuck on the back] so use that to connect to the router - once you've connected it'll come up with limited connectivity.
I then ran the firmware upgrade from http://www.telkomphones.co.za/5102g.htm
To do this, download and unpack the thing. In your browser, go to 10.0.0.2 [for the router config] and click on firmware and follow the instructions.
Once this is done - disconnect and reconnect the vista laptop connection. Open your browser and simply click on tools and uncheck the tickbox alongside "work offline".
I know that sounds ridiculous but that's exactly what I did and I'm surfing fine.
Now... just need to share files and printer and we're 100%.
Hope that helps.

This usualy happens when the wrong encryption key is entered in the laptop for the router. Check the key in the router & type it in again on the laptop.
