Can't connect XP notebook to BT hub

  Halmer 21:32 11 May 2010

I've moved from Pipex to BT b/b today.

The notebook worked fine with my previous router.

I've been on the phone for ages to BT trying to sort it but it now fails at 'acquiring network address'.

It's seeing the router now but just wont connect. I run an XP PC directly off the router and a Vista laptop which is working fine wirelessly.

Any ideas please.

Read the manual.

Probably you have to pair the laptop to the router (manual will explain)

My router needed pressing the button 1 to work with PC.

by downloading the latest wireless adaptor driver from the Dell website.
