The Evil Within 2 review-in-progress
hi to all ,as you may see on my previous postings i recently bought a (Netgear DG834G 54 Mbps Wireless ADSL Firewall Router) ahead of receiving a new laptop with vista & wi-fi etc on it.
having followed the helpful advice on previous postings(thanks again) i went ahead to install the router on the p.c......only to find that it did not actually have a network card!!:(
So i went ahead with plan B to install the netgear software and router-modem directly on the laptop, and then hopefully remove the ethernet cable to then go wireless.
The problem has been so far that the software is not detecting any DSL connection, i am guessing that this is because there is no connection to be found as it is a brand new laptop, i have tried inputing the broadband log-in details from my supplier(tiscali) but their seems to be a problem with the router or even vista being able to find a connection.
This makes me wonder if it is actually possible to connect a new modem-router to a new laptop without previously having a connection before on the laptop?
But since this is supposed to be a router-modem dsl all in one surely this should be able to make a wired connection?
otherwise would i need to buy a wired modem just to make a connection and then install the netgear?
Any ideas on this? as i find this is getting more complex than it should be!! thanks
