    Laptop not connecting to tinterweb.

    i'll try and explain this as best i can here.
    the wife's work pal got an old lapop with a bt voyager 1060 wireless card that cannot find her router (talktalk/aol), but can find other ones(BT, sky), so no tinterweb, said try rebooting but still no joy, so she gave it to me and it connects fine to my tinternet no probs.
    when i go to the connections on the taskbar it shows my connections and under preferred it show hers,
    only getting bits of info, so next thing to try would be a router facory restore, dont even know if her router is fubar at the moment

    Check that the settings for the card match those for the router. It's likely that the router is using a different protocol.

    my router wouldn't work the other day, couldn't find it with laptop went in and change the chanel and now all is fine.

    No expert, but have you checked that the router is broadcasting its SSID?

    also, have you tried connecting the laptop to the router with a cable to see if that works?

    if things were only that simple, but dont know how her router is set up at the moment,as she does not stay local to me, asked her to bring the router and give it to the wife and then i will have a look at it.
    cheers for suggestions

    Yup restore it and then if you can get into the router and see if any settings are screwed.
