:tazz: Hey. I am going to help a friend install the BT Voyager 2100 Wireless ADSL Router. She currently has a network set up which is wired. She wants to add a laptop to it wirelessly, and has brought the BT Voyager 2100 Wireless ADSL Router.

Will it be a simple case of just plugging the wires into the new router, and just installing the wireless card onto the laptop? Or will it be more difficult than that?

Many thanks :)

Just plug the computer into the new router, configure the router with your provider username and password, set up wireless and security, then just tell your wireless laptop to find your wireless network and feed it your security key to get on.

Shouldn't be difficult as its just essentially a straight swap.

cheers bud.

I have sorted it all out with the wired computers- works fine!

I have tried to setup the wireless on the laptops....it doesn't seem to find the wireless network when I hit the refresh button on the list. Later on, I think I fixed it - but the Internet doesn't work, do you think I need to type in the web address BT gave me, and enter the user/pass on the laptops?

Many thanks,
Matt :tazz:
