I know how to set up a wireless LAN in XP. My nice new laptop has Vista Home Premium. When I try to input what I KNOW to be the correct numbers for TCP/IP, specifically preferred DNS settings, it refuses to accept that the third set of numbers have 4 digits. Anyone know a way round this, please? Thanks Kim
Brundle - thanks for answering. Have tired using just IP4 - but should I delete IP6 from the list?Don't know what DHCP is - just want to use the settings which work on my desktop machine. This is a wireless LAN, direct to my provider. Don't see any reason for not using it, when it is working very well and happily?
You can get rid of (or just untick) IPv6. See yaesu's link regarding DHCP, if it's enabled the option to enter your own information into the IP/subnet/gateway and DNS boxes will be unavailable. Choose "Obtain an IP address automatically" unless there is a specific need to configure the information yourself.
Brundle - yes, I do need to configure as it is on the main machine. I live in cyprus - no landline, and all internet is provided via ether net card and a wireless link to the provider. I'll try what you suggest and come bcak to you Cheers Kim
