I have successfully set up a new wireless network for my desk-top using a Speedtouch 585 v6 router and a USB wireless adapter. This works well on the desk-top, and I can also see that one of my neighbours has a (protected) wireless network. I wish to use my Acer Aspire 3000 laptop on the network but it can not find any wireless network connections. I have enabled the inbuilt Broadcom 802.11 Network Adapter in the Device Manager which says it is working correctly. I have also looked for an up-dated Driver using Windows, but none was available. However the wireless icon shows a red cross and the statement "Wireless Connection 4. Not connected" (The desktop is using Connection 2). Having read some of the posts on this forum I checked the Windows IP configuration and obtained the IP address, Subnet mask and Default gateway codes for the desk-top, but on the laptop it says:
"Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Media state..................Media disconnected
Ethernet adapter Wireles Network Connection 4:
Media state..................Media disconnected"
Can you help me get my laptop connected please?? :
