-I have a desktop running Windows (98 possibly, but I'm not sure)
-My daughter has a Dell Inspirion running Windows Vista. It's 2 months old.
-I previously had set up a D-Link wireless router and I thought she was accessing the internet through our router but it recently stopped working and I realized she was connecting through a Linskeys router so I'm assuming she was stealing someone else's internet, they realized it and locked her out.
-I realized my D-Link router wasn't even plugged in and didn't work any more anyway. I purchased a new Belkin N router.
I believe I have the router installed because we can pick up the network with an iPod touch but it's not showing up on the laptop as an available network. I tried going step by step from Spacecowboy's instructions above and at Step #43 I fall short. When I type in the default gateway, I get a listing of websites.
Is this enough information to figure out where my problem is? Please, please help me! I don't know how much longer I can deal with an impatient 13 yr. old. Thank you.
