I have just bought a Advent 5302. The info about it said that it was wireless enabled. However when i tried to install BT broadband onto my laptop the only way i could do it was by using the two cables that came with the BT hub and connecting them into my laptop.I was under the inpression that i wouldn't have any wires connected to my computer! Can anyone please tell a "not so computer literate person" where i am going wrong?

Once connection is established,and cables have been removed did you turn on the wifi switch on laptop?

If i take out the cables then i loose connection to the internet. I have had a look through my booklets that came with laptop and i can't find any mention of how to turn on the wifi.
