Tiscali wireless connection

  hoddle 11:01 21 Mar 2008

I have just signed up with Tiscali for a wirless broadband connection. I can access the intrenet easily on my laptop but when I try on my desktop it does not connect automatically. Tiscali say I should have their icon and be able to click on it then connect. However I have to go into network interenet connections click on the wirless connection, view wirless connctions then disconnect from the speedtouch60efe7 then re connect this then takes me into the intrenet.Surley I should not have to go through this!!
Any ideas?

1. Presumably you have installed a wireless router?

2. Is one of your computers connected to the router via a LAN cable, or are they both equipped with wireless network adapters?

You don't need any icons if you have a router. Once you have set it up with your ISP login it will automatically connect to your broadband service each time you switch it (the router) on.

If you use a computer with a wireless network adapter you should be able to select your router from the available wireless networks that are detected (most people find that one or two, or even more are detected nowadays, as more of their neighbours set up wireless networks). When you select your own network for the first time Windows will offer you the option to connect to it automatically in future - you won't have to click on anything, just launch Internet Explorer, and you'll be able to access the internet.

If you connect a computer to the router with a LAN cable that machine will also be connected automatically, each time it's turned on.
