you can log into your wireless modem by typing, usually anyway, 192.168.1.1 into your IE address bar
you then see a box appear where you type in your username and your password
by default they are usualy "admin"and"password" or "1234"
then select wireless settings and make sure the correct channel is selected
i have done that axxo it on channel 6, do i have to put the setting into the lappy,and how do i go about it sorry for being such a d..khead
Like I said previously, you are being way to vague with regard to what equipment you are using anfield
Router, wireless card type?
Make sure too that your Windows "Zero Configuration" is turned on.
Right Click MY COMPUTER (COMPUTER for Vista)
Go to the SERVICES section and branch it open
If the service is stopped right click it & choose START (see Pic).
Also check the following:
Double click your wireless adapter in the System tray (looks like a small monitor)
Click on PROPERTIES
Highlight your Router and click on the “Wireless Networks” TAB
Make sure the box for “Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings” is ticked.
