extra wireless connection

  kimtrnc 14:57 10 Aug 2008

I have a PC and a wireless laptop. Both access internet via Netgear router ( PC itself not wireless). System works perfectly.
Now have visitor, who wants to use my network, First time round worked perfectly as soon as the security WEP was entered. Since then, latest laptop will not connect. It sometimes doesn't see my network at all, sometimes sees it, but describes it as "limited or no connectivity" despite working perfectly on the other two systems.
BTW, also tried changing the WEP key - my own machines happily internetting - third machine won't.
Any ideas, please?

Sounds more like a problem on your visitors lappy (most probably the wireless driver)

Delete the wireless device from control panel device manager and let WIndows re-install it.

Other things to check:

Distance from the router (will effect signal strength)

Wireless switch on the new lappy.
