Hi, afraid I don't know a lot about laptops/internet, but I do believe the laptop may have a small actual switch or a keyboard combination or something like F2, or FN+F2 to enable the adapter to connect. If you have any instructions re your laptop, perhaps you would find it in there.

What is the make of the USB adaptor?

I assume that you set up security for your wireless router through the first PC. Having done that have you put in the password to connect to the wireless router on the 2nd PC?

Hi

well not exactly in that order , found out how to put a password on when the thing automatically popped up, on the 2nd pc, rang my isp about security and they said that the 1st pc will be ok too

the usb is a Peak one, but seems to be running ok now , have downloaded AVG and Msn today so , things are cooking on Gas so to speak

thanx
