This being my first post, please be gentle with me !!
We have had a successful Netgear WGT624 running for the last few years now. Wired via Virgin broadband downstairs and wireless via the router to upstairs. I have this week treated myself to a brand new Samsung P500 (With XP) Laptop. I am unable to connect to the router or internet at all.
I can't remember all that long ago how I set the upstairs computer up but I cannot find anything on the laptop that I am doing wrong.
It has found two (sometimes three) networks close by. I have selected Netgear (ours), click connect and it goes off to try and find a networking address. It fails everytime !!
Can someone please shed any light on if I am doing anything wrong or there is a setting that I have overlooked.
Another thing the computer upstairs has a WG111T adaptor and is working fine, do I need another one of these (I have one just in case) with the new wireless laptop.
I hope I have explained this all ok, I'm not very technical minded. I know the basics and can follow instructions ok so please bear with me.
Thank you in advance
