My Pc connection to the internet is via talktalk broadband. I have just bought a Toshiba laptop P100 laptop computer which is wireless ready, (intel (R)Pro wireless 3945ABG Network Connection)Toshiba told me to use the same disk I used to install wireless broadband into the PC(Modem router and USB Adaptor) for the new laptop. However, that has not worked.
Can anyone tell me, please, what I have to do to get the laptop connected via the same talktalk broadband connection?

Hi, I would guess that you need to run the Network Setup Wizard on both computers.

Thank you, Technotiger,but I thought that the ADSL Modem with a wireless router beems the waves directly to the laptop without having to do anything to the PC with the USB adaptor.

Well that is what I did with my ADSL Router on Desktop and my partners wifi enabled laptop, - works great.

You have to get Wireless router settings from the Setup page in the router and enter them into the Laptop wireless software

eventually.
