i have just gone over to sky broadband. the router is a netgear just like my old one but it will not pick up the wireless on the other two laptops. how do i do this. the adapter for one of the laptops is a netgear wg111v2.

Have you got wireless adapters enabled on the laptops?

1. On the laptop you need to connect, click 'start', 'run' and type in "services.msc" without quotes.

2. Scroll down to wireless zero or config and right click it.

3. Click 'start'

4. right Click it again and click 'restart'

5. close the window.

6. Right click on the system tray icon for the adapter and click on 'view available connections'. This will pull up a window showing any available networks (and may list others in your area)

Note: If you do not see any connections repeat steps 1 to 6 again.

7. Choose the network you need to connect to and click connect.

Netgear routers sometimes start with wireless disabled in the set up , have a look to see if yours is started .
