I have connected my centrino laptop to a wireless router Netgear DG834G through AOL Gold. The set up was fine but the laptop picks up everyother device in the range (probably neightbours) except mine. I have rebooted it twice with out luck. How can I get my laptop to recognise the router? Help please.

Enter the routers setup page and make sure that the wireless access point is enabled it is set to broadcast its SSID and that encryption is turned off for the moment. Also turn off your firewalls to rule out problems with those. Only leave the off till you get it working thou.

Does your laptop now see the router?
