Hi. I have a Netgear DG834GT ADSL modem router with 3 laptops which I wish to connect wirelessly. I have set-up the router with a BT Internet connection and it is working fine - as long as I connect the laptops using ethernet cables. I have tried to enable the wireless connection, but despite ticking the 'enable wireless' and 'SSID' boxes and entering network name, applying relevant security etc, the router is not broadcasting the network (ie. the wireless LED does not flash and the laptops detect no network) The laptops are running XP SP2 and have ZoneAlarm firewall and AVG anti-virus running.
Any help in resolving this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. AT
ASH88 - You're a life saver. I've been having major problems getting a wireless connection on my new netgear and had many suggestions - all very valid - from the group here. however just saw your WEP suggestion. Worked perfectly!! Many thanks
I have seen another thread that said they had been trying for months (more patience than me) and as soon as they changed from WEP to WPA worked fine, had me confused as to why untill I saw your comment Ash88.
