can someone please help me. I have two computers connected to a router with wired network. the router is also wireless and I intend to buy a multimedia notebook. It says it has wireless Lan 802.11b/g. In the information, it says it requires a WLAN access point, what is this ? and do I need to buy any adaptors to use this equipment wirelessly. I will be using windows vista on this notebook, please can anyone help me with this I,m a complete novice on wireless connections, Thanks Kelvin

Wireless router = WLAN access point, you can tick that box. If wifi is built in to the laptop, you don't need any external adaptors.

I realise it refers to XP but the principles are the same for Vista.

The 2110 is encrypted by default for wireless use. There should be a red or pink label on the back of the router with the WEP key on it. You will need to apply this key to your laptop to establish a connection. You can change to WPA- PSK encryption afterwards if you want to.
