Have a PC running on XP but would like to be able to connect a laptop wirelessly to the 'network'. Got a router from family member - it's an o2 one, but can't get it to work- as the modem i use currently is a talktalk one.. the o2 has its own modem in it methinks..can i do sommat in order to get it going? or do i HAVE to have the wireless router talktalk give at an additional cost?
i connected the ethernet, dsl and power supply cable and all lights on the router lit up- and were stagnant, not flashing at all.. the 'internet' one too..so power is going to it, but pc doesn't recognise it for internet access- cos of the modem? help and suggestions appreciated, and contributors repped as always
