Begrateful if anyone has any suggestions on the problem below. I’ve tried some suggestions on previous threads but with no success.
We have just installed a new wireless router (HUAWEI Echolife HG520B). The router appears to work fine with the XP desktop which is connected directly (not via WiFi) to the router. However when we try to connect using our Vista Laptop the internet connection is unavailable.
The Windows Network and Sharing centre seems to indicate that the connection to the router is fine but that the conection from the router to the internet is faulty. If I try running the wire direct to the laptop I don’t get a connection and can’t even connect to the Router maintenance page (http://192.168.1.1).
The ISP advised that I should try different channels on the router but this fails to make any difference. I believe the issue is with something on the laptop, esp given that the kids are playing PS3 upstairs and using this Wi Fi router to connect to the internet.
Any help appreciated.
