My laptop has a built in wireless Smart card thingy and my PC is using a Netgear wireless USB Adaptor.
To increase the range I bought a Netgear Rangeless Mimo router WPN824. However, I found configuring it confusing. My PC can 'see' the network but can't connect and the laptoip appears to be still using just the original modem. These are my main issues/questions:
1) When I configured the Mimo router it seemed identical to the way I set up the original Netgear modem. Am I effectively creating a different network to my original one? If I called my original network 'Hoggle' do I still call the Mimo network 'Hoggle' or is it a different network.
2) I used WEP security in the modem but when configuring the Mimo router it offere WEP2 security which I used (therefore the two pieces of equipment have different security policies).
3) Basically, am I supposed to be configuring the Mimo to mirror the settings of the original network or am I creating a new network to which the laptop and PC must be configured to access.
Im sorry about waffling but Im sure those in the know would get what Im saying and I would appreciate some help. Although Netgear works well, their instructions are awful, if not non-existant!
