Really sorry to be back again. I now have my Netgear wireless router and hoorah, all configured and my work laptop is up and running. However, I forgot to add a security code but still, I can go back and do that (I hope).
Right now the problem I have is that I used to receive my emails to my tiscali account through my Outlook Inbox but now it won't let me send or receive and just tries to dial-up each time. I presume this is a problem within connection settings or internet option - but which? I just can't find how to fix this. It was working before I installed the wireless router.
By the way, if you take the time to reply to me, can you please keep it simple, my PC knowledge is rubbish!
