1. The router is set up and connected to your broadband service using the router's default settings, is that right?

2. Can you connect to the internet if you connect the laptop to the router via an Ethernet cable?

3. Did you install the Sitecom software on the laptop before you inserted the wireless card?

How did you resolve the firmware problem LivEvil?

Have you tried using the built in wireless connection on your laptop ? assuming it has one of course , although I would imagine that all but the most basic have built in wireless for the past 3 years or so .

no ita a wireless card sitecom WL-120 for somereason the wireless didnt come built in :-S

Dipso- i reset the router for 10 seconds and then reinstalled the router. can anyone go throught the process of how i should set up a wireless connection just so there isnt any thing iv missed i.e what the properties should be on the wireless, should IPv6 be enabled ect

it also says when its connected to the network that the connection is local and limited and that is unidentified.

What is the make and model of you Fujitsu Siemens laptop ? Did you install Vista on it yourself or did it come with it ?


  Ashrich 23:08 22 Jun 2007

and no gateway

if i put in my gateway of in network connections it will have the correct gateway but still the wrong ip address, why does it do this?
