orange wireless problems with vista

  Mickey69 22:32 04 Oct 2007

Just bought new wireless enables laptop and got orange broadband at the same time. Problems connecting in wireless mode but can connect when using cable. Any suggestions - I'm a complete novice at these things so don't confuse me with tech language!!!!

Ok , let's see right click on the two monitors icon on the task bar , select " connect to a network , you see yours and double click on it , it asks for the security code ( probably provided by Orange with the wireless router ) you enter it and click on " connect " ...then what happens ?

Will try this tonight and get back to you. Thanks for the help so far.....I'm sure I'll need more later!!

No problems , Vista will ask you what type of network you are connecting to , you need to tell it it's a private one .
