after installing "livebox" from orange i now find my linksky wireless adaptor does not connect so have lost network. orange cant help as they are trained on their adaptors only. how do i set up a third party adaptor

I have a Livebox which I connect my laptop to. I was thinking of getting a USB wireless adapter to connect my desktop PC. isn't it just a case of setting up a local area network between the two PCs?

Perhaps you should post your query in the "Networking" forum.

i know its been a fortnight but have now a happy network up and running. after much messing about i realised that on livebox configuration the ssid code was different to the one on my machine.made them both what was on the base of the machine and everything went straight through. hope this can be of help to others
