To start with I do not know all the technical terms for equipment so please do not make fun of me. I live in the country and wireless internet was made available to me the first of the year. The company came out, put up an antennae and hooked up my connection. I also bought a linsksys router so I could use my laptop in the other room. Right from the start the wireless did not work as planned and the direct connection kept stalling out. It said I was connected but I could not access the internet. The company said to unplug the router to reset it. Sometimes it worked but not anymore. I have given up getting help from this company as there seems to be no rhyme or reason to why sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I decided to get a card for the desktop and it worked very well--never stalled. I emailed the company to tell them I thought maybe there was something wrong with my laptop and about 2 hours later the desktop could not connect. I did not change any settings at all. Can anyone tell me simply how to begin to get my 2 computers using this service properly. When it works it is great but I have to resort to dialup when it doesn't. Right now this is the only company to use so I am stuck if I want to continue this service. Tonight the desktop is working but the laptop will only connect wireless and the icon for the lan connection (I think that is what you call it) just keeps trying to acquire a networks address. Again I am sorry I am not very technical but am just tired of this not working. I have been to various sites and read all the articles but nothing has clicked.
