Dummies wireless setup guide.

  GANDALF <|:-)> 21:35 03 Oct 2006

A friend of mine wants to set up her wireless network using a Belkin Mimo wifi-router/modem. She is using a cable from her main computer and she has a wireless notebook that she also wants to use. I seem to remember that someone had a link to a very easy setup guide (not belkins' own). Could someone direct me to it and to an idiots' guide to security? All the guides I can find are a tad complicated.

She has had a go but cannot access Hotmail or any Microsoft sites and I suspect that she has not configured the router correctly. I have tried to talk her through setting security but she is not very computer literate.

She lives miles away so a personal visit is out of the question.

Is it just those sites that she cannot access?

Yes, anything to do with microsoft. I did suspect a virus but she assures me that she has run a scan with AVG and Ewido. Sorry to be a bit vague but it is an hour or so since we spoke.
