Hi all.Can someone please help a complete novice here. I bought a zoostorm 4-6610 laptop.Loaded windows,norton internet security and Aol silver (supplied with netgear dg834 wireless router)everything ok except cannot finish wireless set up on disc. It seems my laptop wont find the router or vise versa.My laptop doesnt seem to have a wireless conection.Have checked the settings on browser using address given.All seems ok.Followed Aols help e-mail they sent me all to no avail.Can use router wired but lost as to what to check now. aol not much help. Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks..........
The words on the zoostorm 4-6610 says it has a built in wireless lan. Look for a switch as suggested. Is there an icon on your status bar(bottom right of desktop with the clock) showing a 'radiating monitor' if not get into system hardware devices Control Panel, System, Hardware to check if installed. If not get into bios on startup-should tell you what to press, Del or F2 are common. Once in look for something that can enable wireless card
I really appreciate all the comments.Here's the story so far.Still no wireless access.have run and rerun aol disc,checked router settings using int exp & typing address. Have looked in drivers although I really dont know what to look for. Do I have a faulty router,a wireless driver missing or deleted or is it Norton messing the whole thing up! Is anyone who really knows computers(which obviously excludes me!)prepared to have a chat or offer a list of things to check in order in simple talk for a very frustrated user? Am at the point where I give up and stick to wired acces........ Thanks. ps wotno means"wotno idea!"
Steep learning curve this has been but it appears the pcnextday neglected to send out the driver for the ethernet controller on either the boot discs. They e-mailed it to me on an attachment. This fixed it straight away. thanks to all of you for your help & comments
