Wireless channel can be 11( thats what is in my case).

After editing the above info. do not fail to note the KEY before clicking Apply
Now just enable the WIRELESS CONNECTION on your PC /
Pull the SSID of your router and Click connect.
It will ask for the WEP/WPA key?
Enter the key and Click connect.

SOURCE: Unable to connect to Linksys BEFW11S4 router from new Toshiba lap

this sounds like security problems , other people have experienced problems with vista but most have been able to resolve them.

whilst connected to your router using an ethernet cable open a browser windows and type in the rounter address these
are usually one of 2 most likely yours is
and typing password as "admin" and no user name. Use your password if you have changed it earlier 2

Go to wireless tab. 3. Go to wireless security sub-tab 4. If security mode is wpa or wpa2 note down passphrase/shared key, if security mode is WEP note down wep key number 1. This will be your network key
also check other. 

On the Vista laptop with the connection
Start --> Network

Click on Network and Sharing Center

if It shows a red X between my network and the Internet.

click on the Customize link (below and right of the red X)

Under location type if it was set to Public. change it
to Private. Hit Next

At that point my whole network might go down,  and
reset the router. (turned off and turned on)

After that my red X under network and sharing center
was gone. And my internet connection problem was gone.

I forgot to mention that before you shoul have turned
off all software firewalls and virus scanners. prior.

if that does not work when you are logged into the router page check to see if their is an option to update the router software/firmware ,if their is no option then you  may have to manually downlaod the firmware from linksys and update that way .

Hope this helps if not ask for clarification on anything your unsure of.

You should only use Windows xp for running a program that is not yet available from Apple. There shouldn't be much reason to link to the net while in Windows. Also while in Windows you are wide open to any viruses that exist. Try getting your work done without getting on the net, then go back to your Apple format. There you are 99% free of viruses. … Still need to link onto the net let me know I will ask at our Apple Computer Club on Monday

Mac won't recognise network

Based upon the way you worded the message, you were trying to get the Mac working wirelessly? The description of how you were trying to set up your network (SysPref\Net\BuiltInEthernet) is for WIRED connections, not wireless. If you are running OSX and you have a built-in wireless adapter, use System Preferences\Network\Airport choice to set up for wireless connections. If you are trying to use the wire either because you don't have a wireless card or it is not working, check to make sure that the cable is good...maybe hijack the cable that you know works for your PC and test it. Please let me know if I am on the right track to solve the problem.
