Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I am trying to conect a Linksys router to my wireless laptop in order for me to use it anywhere in the house. The last step is to conect the router to computer and it shows a tower. Since I have a lap top this does not work. Can you give me instructions as to how to connect to laptop.


Answers :

Can you provide the Wireless Router model number located on the bottom of the device. It should be on a white label.

\015\012I would think that during the entire setup process your computer would be connected to your router, or that you were at least wirelessly connected to the router to configure.
\015\012
\015\012Down in the notification area (area by the clock in the lower right corner of your computer) do you see an icon with a monitor and a couple curved lines? You should be able to right-click on it and select "View Wireless Networks". This should open a window where it will display the name of your wireless router (provided that it's powered on). You can highlight the name (we call it an SSID) and select CONNECT at the lower right corner of the window.
\015\012
\015\012If you have security enabled you will need to input the security key you created and select ok.
\015\012
\015\012That should connect you to the wireless network. Have you already configured the router to connect to the internet through your Internet Service providers equipment?
