Hello all - please be gentle with a tech *****.... I recently got a router and after much arsing about speaking bad french to the club internet helpline got my PC internet and email working via Ethernet cable (?) Step 2 was to buy a Netgear wireless card thingy for my wife's laptop - installed fine and it can see the wireless network fine but cannot access the internet. It did say 'connected to router' for a while and everything worked tickety boo but then that disappeared. I'm sure I'm doing / not doing someting simple - can anyone help....BTW both systems running Windows XP. Ideally I would also like to share files and printers but I realise this may be some way off in the valley of dreams.
