Wirless Network Connection Problem

  Dave911 16:49 19 May 2005

I have just bought a Compaq Presario M2130EA laptop with a Intel Pentium M715A centrino processor (wireless) and am having problems connecting wirelesly to my router - a Netgear DG834G. I have hard wired the laptop to the router and configured it and it can see it and get access to the internet and if I turn off my Norton Internet security - can actually see my main computer!! (As an extra - how do I get round NIS so that it can be on yet allow my laptop access).
As I see it the problem appears to be with either the Wirless Network Connection which tells me that it is not connected or the router settings which completely baffle me!!
Ihave tried to repair the connection by right click and repair tool but it tells me that the 'Wireless Network is not available' and that I should see my system administrator - well I suppose if I look in the mirror then.......
I am somewhat at a loss and would liek to know if anyone had any ideas.
I have run every setup wizard I can including the wireless network wizard using a flash drive and the network wizard doing all it says but it still does not appear to work.

see one computer then it is obviously a problem with the computer you can't see. Try removing the network devices and starting over again. Try this link click here for more information.

Sorry Mr A - I went to Netgear in the end and I had to change the channel number from 11 to 6 on the router setup - that then fettled it and I am up and running.

Thanks for the advice anyway
