Okay, I have a Compaq Presario Desktop and a Sony Vaio Laptop--I have gone through the directions to set up the Wireless internet (CD-Rom that comes with the WRT54G Linksys model). Now according to the CD-ROM I believe I have done everything correctly in regards to setting up the connection on my Desktop, but the Laptop simply will not pick up the connection for some reason. In My "Network Connections" it ALWAYS says 1394 Connection Enabled 1394 net adapter Local Area Connection Network Cable Unplugged Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Wireless Network Connection Enabled ORiNOCO Wireless LAN Mini P... In the directions to set up Wireless Internet, it says that the Local Area Connection should be my first connection (it's second when I look at mine's) and I should set the TCP/IP to "Obtain IP address automatically" --but I'm why is it always saying "Network Cable Unplugged?" I'm actually getting SOMETHING in regards to connection (but I think it's someone else's wireless connection). At the bottom of the screen with the mini-computers icon it says: Wireless Network Connection (2WIRE587)--I think this is someone else's wireless connection "Connected" Speed 11 Mbps Signal Strength "Very Low" I've tried to get off of the connection (2WIRE587) I go to "Connect to Wireless Network" The screen says: --------------------------- The following network(s) are available. To access a network, select it from the list, and then click Connect. Available networks: s051881 --This is the network I've set up-- 2WIRE587 --This is the network I keep getting kicked to-- And a space to put in the network key-- If you have trouble connecting click ADVANCED. -------------------------------- I click Advanced and get to a screen titled "Wireless Network Connection Properties" A box is checked that says "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" Available networks: S051881--My network that I wish worked 2WIRE587--this is the one that the laptop keeps connecting to There's an option to configure this--but it says it's already configured Preferred Networks Automatically connect to available networks in the order listed below. S051881 (this has a red X next to the little connection icon) 2WIRE587 (this has a circle on the icon) So I don't know what to do...any help would be appreciated, yet I understand this is very difficult to explain so it's fine if no one can save me! If you need extra details let me know. Thanks in advance!
