  1. Hello all

    I'm not sure that I am in the correct screen, if not I'm sorry but this is my first time in this site and I am learning. Anyway I have a wireless laptop and a wireless-G 2.4 GHz broadband router and I am haiving a fit hooking it up to my wired computer. I am following the instructions on how to wire it to my computer but I lose my connection to my wired computer everytime. If some one could let me know what I am doing wrong that would be great. Thanks a lot for reading this and hopefully for some help.
