wireless setup help

  shauny36 18:28 29 Oct 2006

i used to have everything setup just right until tiscali decided to mess it up. so have just joined aol and recieved a free netgear wireless modem but i cant get connected on the other 2 computers upstaairs.
i was using a belkin wireless modem with 3 usb adaptors which worked fine but if i try to use the belkin again i cant connect upstairs.
what am i doing wrong.

cant remember if the belkin router was just working by itself, i think it was.

I am an existing customer with aol so i just bought the Netgear DG834g Router and set up the network myself with a lot of help from Ade.h and his website click here It was a little difficult but i got there in the end.

Set up the netgear using the AOL disk. Important, before you do this create a new screen name with +18 and master status.

Run the disk using the new screen name and password when asked. Name your network then put in your 13 character password for WEP security 128 bit encryption.
It will run a test to check router is properly set up. Note it is important to create a new screen name just for the router's use.
Configure your usb adapters to the info and make sure 128 bit encryption is selected.
