My mate has brought his laptop round and is trying to connect to my router but the laptop and dongle isn't finding my router?Is it possible to connect and how...THANKS.
Best and easiest way is to connect by cable.
Is the 02 3g dongle a pay as you go internet dongle. If so, then no.Has the laptop got WiFi? make and model of laptop would help.
Disconnect the dongle and try to connect to your router without it, assuming his laptop is "wireless enabled", of course.
HiWe are trying to set the laptop upstairs but the routers downstairs :p

make and model of laptop to see if it has WiFi built in.
If the laptop does not have WiFi, then you need either a WiFi dongle or a long ethernet cable.
The laptop is quite old and definitely isn't wireless enabled.Just had a look at the dongle and it has a wifi logo?And why can it connect to hotspots but not to a router?I'm a complete novice :)
It's an O2 dongle. So it should just connects to O2 hotspots.
