I have just recently bought my son a brand new Advent 7104 laptop. I am trying to make it internet ready for him coming home.
looking into the system hardware it shows the following.
1. 1394 Net Adapter
2. Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200bg Network Connection
3. Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC
I have looked into the Wireless driver details and it says that the device is working properly.
However, i try to look for the connection and cant seen to find it.
I have a thompson speedtouch wireless router which is currently running. I have a computer upstairs running on the internet and am getting a good signal strength from it. Obviously this computer is working fine. I can run a further 2 computer on the router. This new one however will not find the signal.
I have tried to switching to the Network Connections screen but i get the same old reading. NOT CONNECTED. i have tried enableing it but to na avail.
I have tried to use the Wireless Network Setup Wizard but am told USE A USB FLASH DRIVE (Recommended.) I cant understand why i need to use one of these.
Am i wrong in thinking that or is that the simple answer, us a USB Flash Drive.
OR i there something else wrong.
Hoping to hear from someone soon
