OK- I think ive set my wireless connection up - but i dont know!

How do i name my network so when i try to connect via my laptop i know im on the right network?

(Im on Tiscali, I have NETGEAR ADSL modem).

"How do i name network"

You change the SSID address to a name you want to give your Wireless Network,

452john06 / ezyclip01 etc which would allow you to easily identify your network

By default some wireless router come set-up with the manufacture name as the SSID

address 3Com, Linksys, Belkin etc

Ambrat worked... and i was able to find it on my laptop... and i was 'connected succesfully' entered the WEP key or whatver it is...

Maybe i have to do something with my firewall? on PC and laptop?

Starts afresh delete profile from laptop

Connect using new SSID name and security code (copy & paste security code) as typing

in code you can made a mistake

You should not need to change the firewall

i definitley didnt make a mistake- as i pasted it in- and it accepted! ill give it a go though

Apologies, could you please talk me through how to delete and re- add the profile!?
