Well, im certainly making use of the forum this week.... sheesh!!

Ok, next question! I have an Acer Apsire 1605LC laptop. My house mate has just installed Wireless broadband (Sky) with a netgear router. I bought and installed a wireless card (my laptop does not have it built in) and all was working fine!! Now, my girlfriend does not have a computer so to use the internet at hers i got a Tiscali disk and used it to get a dial up / pay & go account.. again, worked fine , no probs. I get home and try to use the Wireless and nothing happens!! I re-checked the settings and changed it back to 'never dial a connection' etc... and it still wouldnt work. I've now unistalled the Tiscali and the Wireless is working fine again... am i doing something wrong or are they just not compatible...?

dont bother with the disk and create a new connection in the Internet/Network area i cant think of any reason they wouldnt work one should be able to use any connection like.
