Wireless connection to 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.

Hi,
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.

The laptop was clean up and new windows were loaded but the internet drivers is missing. Were do i get it ?


You do no need drivers for the Internet, you only need IE browser.
If you cannot connect to the Internet then you may have one or more of these problems.
Your ADSL modem has not been configured with your Internet service provider.
Your LAN driver may not be installed or the LAN cable from your laptop to the ADSL modem is faulty.
If you connect to the Internet using a wireless connection then the wireless driver on your laptop may not be installed and or may not be configured with the router's wireless settings.

I cannot connect to the internet with my belkin wireless adapater and i don't know why, please help.


you need more than a wireless adapter to connect to the internet......
you need a wireless network to connect to. in cafe's and pubs the owner sometimes sets up a WiFi network that their patrons can connect to, however most people have to provide their own.

to get to the internet , you will need.

A broadband connection (ADSL / Cable) this normally comes with a standard NON wifi modem
A WiFi Router (including ADSL / Cable Modem) depending on what you have already.


then to link a remote PC / Laptop to this network, A suitable wireless adapter ( like your belkin adapter)

it is a common misconception that a wireless adapter is all you need (advertising is vague)
