get wireless connection MANUALLY

  Viv-208691 12:01 24 Nov 2004

Hi there, can someone please help me to set up my new Centrino laptop's wireless conection manually. I have a wireless Linksys router which works fine and I want to add my new laptop to the network. Howver, I am having a few problems. I don't seem able to do it manually (I don't want WIndows to set it up for me). I've copied over the protocal settings (inc preferred DNS adress) and unticked the 'let WIndows set up my wireless network' box. It doesn't simply 'connect' like it does on my wireless laptop with its network card, any ideas why??

could be an ip config prob try shutting down everything and reboot from the first in the chain through to laptop last leavin at least 40 seconds between boot ups.

But I currently only have my laptop on the network, so there shouldnt be any conflicts. Ive assigned the IP adress so should be fine. It only gets signal if I get WIndows to search for network, I want it to start automatically without using Windows.

ANy more advice?>
