Talk Talk Wireless Router

I already have a laptop set up on my Phillips (Talk Talk) wireless router.(SNA56ONS/05) My laptop uses Windows XP.

I have now bought an additional laptop but this utilises Windows Vista. Having spoken with TalkTalk, they say that i will have to contact Phillips direct for them to configure my router?

Can you advise what i should do without trying to contact Phillips? I have looked on their website to see if there are any downloads available for my model, but i cannot see it listed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Geoff

Do you just want to add the WinVista compute to the wireless network?

You can try this steps

1. Make sure that the wireless switch is on, on the WinVista laptop.
2. At the bottom right handside of your screen where you have the time look for the two computer icon, right click it and go to connect to a network. On the screen that will pop-up you will see the wireless networks around you. Just select your network and connect to it.

Just reply to this post in case you will still have a problem.

Can't make a wireless connection.


what's the error? if your getting the error Connected with limited connectivity try checking your network key in the router and the wireless settings on your computer if they are correct or just removed your security key, if your getting an error no networks in range or no network available check the router settings if the wireless signal is turned on the router, if you get an error windows could not connect to wireless networks try uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card driver on your system and set the the router to defaults then try connecting with out changing any settings in the router to see if it will connect, if it connects, then there was/were settings in the router and possibly in the wireless settings in your laptop that was causing the computer and the router to have communication issues, also check for possible applications such as network magic that could cause a wireless signal to degrade or not allow connections at all if such application exists on your system uninstall it Microsoft or windows has its own wireless configuration software built into handle wireless connections in XP it is wireless zero configuration in vista and in win7 WLAN which can be set in network and sharing connection in the control panel window.....

I have a gateway 450SX4 and it has the Broadcom Utility for wireless and it's not picking up any networks and I can't use it. I would like to use IntelPro. Can I do that


what is the operating system on the computer ?
If it is WINDOWS XP then you can use the windows utility to connect to the wireless network. It i better to use windows utility. You will need to start the wireless zero configuration. If it is WINDOWS VISTA / 7 then it will automatically use the windows utility.
You will also need to check the wireless settings of the router. Is there any other computer online using the router ?
If yes then you can use that computer to open the set up page of the router to check the wireless settings.

If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

Need a wireless router for my talk talk broadband


You could use any brand wireless router with your broadband service for a wifi signal for your laptop or any wireless internet to any device that is compatible for it. You first need to make sure your laptop has built in wireless or if it needs an adapter(ex. Wireless notebook adapter, USB Adapter). and if its built in then all you would need to buy is a wireless router(Linksys has a really nice and user friendly setup. Model:WRT54G).

I have a Philips Wireless Router SNA5630NS/05


Go fix your portting settings in your router.
Now do you want to gain access the laptop by loggin into it?
If so, go to VNC.com and download one of them. (Virtual Network Computer) You will have to install VNC on both computers. Then use VNC viewer to witre the ip of your laptop. Then press enter, you should gain access to your laptop wirelessly.

But you have to do portforwarding in the router and other small stuffs to make ths work.
