Any chance of a more precise description? Which wire, and where? Map your configuration out for us.

one wire from the cable modem to the wireless adaptor
one wire from the wireless adaptor to the back of the computer

How on earth can you have a wire from or to a wireless adapter? That is simply not possible.

Connect an Ethernet Cable between the router's WAN Port and the Modem's Ethernet Port.

Connect a second Ethernet Cable between the PC's network card port and Port 1 of the Router's LAN

You now have to check that the Lan port on the computer and the network connection is set up correct

click here

Once you have set up the computer launch your web browser and type the Router's IP

address access code, which you will find in the manual, into the browser address bar

This will open the configuration pages to set up the router and wireless networking.

Once the router set-up is completed and you have SAVE the setting log out and close browser

Reboot the Router by power it off and back on and wait 1-2 Min’s

Setting Up The Wireless System in the Router

Access the router and click the Wireless section in the router setting

You have to set-up the Wireless Network Name the SSID address on the router first

By default some wireless router come set-up with the manufacture name as the SSID address 3Com, Linksys, Belkin etc,

You should 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

You should also change the Wireless Channel # the default is normally Channel 11 which most persons uses so change it to 6 / 8 this will save you having interferences and low signal quality from other network close by using channel 11

Write it down; or save on a flash drive as the same SSID name and Channel # and Security Code must be used on All wireless device when setting then up to access your wireless system

Do not set-up the security system as yet

Laptop Wireless Device Setting

Most laptop computer these days comes with a building wireless card; some required you to switch on the Wireless Radio Antenna via a small slide switch on the laptop

Or using the FN (Function) key you have to hold down the FN key and press the key with a small antenna icon to turn on the wireless card

You can also check that the wireless card is Enable/Disable from inside the Network Connection Area

Start-Setting-Network Connection-Right click-Wireless Area Connection-Enable or Disable as required

Some times you have to Disable and Enable before the card will connect to the wireless system

If not sure if laptop have a antenna switch check the manual PC layout quick guide

Check out these site before you setup the wireless system could save you a lot of time and headache.

Question said by first time user of ADSL Wireless Broadband

The PC hard wire to the router does not have to be on for the wireless system to work

Once the router is on all wireless devices should have local and Internet access

With a hard wire system the LAN card connect speed at 100Mbps, the wireless system connect speed at 0Mbps -54Mbps depending on the distance, amount and thickness of walls, quality of signal etc

You cannot see the wireless system from a hard wire PC only the Local Area Network Connection

You should not have both the LAN and Wireless on the same PC connect at the same time.

As this can causes conflict within the router

The normal connect speed on a laptop build in wireless card or USB adapter is 54Mbps on older laptops with build in wireless cards the connect speed is 11Mbps

If laptop is losing connection walk around the room with the laptop and check the signal quality and the connect speed

If you buy one of the new 108Mbps wireless router you must buy a 108Mbps pci card or a 108Mbps USB Adapter for each wireless device you want to connect at that speed.
