I have connected my BT Voyager 2110 adsl router, and my hardwired desktop is working fine.
However, when trying to connect my laptop wirelessly - it will not find the connection. I have tried opening internet explorer and entering 'voyager.home' but i keep getting an error message 'internet Explorer could not open the search page'. The Toshiba laptop has an Atheros AR5005G wireless network adapter internally.
I don't know where to go from here - any suggestions ?
Hi again - i have gone into network connections and there is the antenna Y type sign, but it has a big red cross and says 'wireless network connection not connected'. I have gone into view available networks and refreshed - but still no good.
How do i scan for a wireless connection ?? Thanks!
As your desktop with a "wired" connection is working, go into the router's Setup pages with that computer and, if there is an option to toggle broadcasting of its SSID Off/On, make sure it is set to 'On' so that the router is visible when your laptop scans for Available Networks..
