You may need to 'turn on' your wireless adapter as when it's not required it's taking power from the battery.

The wireless radio circuit can be turned on / off by pressing (Function) Fn and F1 together. By default it is switched off. There is a bit of an problem on the early models as the wifi light on the front of the webbook does not get turned on when the wireless is activated, making it a little tricky to tell whether wireless is on or off.

Our laptop is the same.

Hope this helps.

Is this the one from Carphone Warehouse ?

Where is your wireless router in relation to your Webbook ?

Assume you have been notified that your wireless broadband connection is active ? If not when did you take out a contract (with Carphone Warehouse) for 3G Mobile Broadband ? It can take up to 2 or 3 weeks to set you up.

Have you fitted the filters on ALL the phones including extensions on that line ?

..... I forgot 3G Mobile Broadband needs no router and is instant set up once you have the account ( my only excuse is it was about 2 am ).

Suggest if you are still having problems take it back to the shop and ask them to demo 3G Mobile Broadband on YOUR webbook.
