I have a Windows XP desktop connected to Tiscali broadband via a Speedtouch (usb) modem. I wish to set up a wireless connection to my wife's laptop running Vista. I have got a Belkin wireless cable router (Wirelss G Router). As I am a technical ignoramus please advise me what steps I need to take to set up the system. Thanks.
Is your Belkin kit a modem/router or just a router? It would help if you gace the model number.
With a modem/router (which is what I would recommend) then you will not need your Speedtouch USB modem. You will ideally need to connect your PC to the modem/router by cable (not USB) but an ethernet cable so that you can configure the modem/router. Most modem/routers come with a quick start guide which explains this.
