problems connecting 802.11b to wireless internet

  confusedjack 19:59 24 Nov 2005

I am relatively unaware to what i am doing so please be gentle! I have recently ordered wanadoo broadband, however they only supplied one inventel usb adapter..meaning only one computer at the moment has the internet. The inventel usb adapter online cost 45 pounds, and being a student i thought that going on ebay and buying an alternative usb adapter would be the way forward. I have a IEEE 802.11B Wireless Lan USB Adapter which at the moment does not seem to work. It recognises the wanadoo connection but doesnt want to connect! I would be so so grateful for anybodies help on this! Thankyou jack

A collegue of mine has had all sorts of trouble connecting to his Wanadoo live box, it seems to be increadibly choosey about what will & won't work.

Try posting this in the helproom with the heading Wanadoo Livebox problems and someone should be able to help.

Or in Networks. No need to duplicate the post though.
