Wireless Router (Netgear DG834GT) Not visible


Wireless Router (Netgear DG834GT) Not visible

Hi Folks,
I'm new to plusnet. I was previously with NTL cable.

Last night I got my new wireless router. I ran thru the setup
instructions on my XP machine for both PlusNet and the Netgear router.

I used an ethernet cable as advised to do the initial set up.
Everything appeared to be working well. I tested that I was connecting to
the internet and tuned into a radio station.

However, once I removed the ethernet cable I lost connectivity at once.

I could not get the computer to use the wifi connection I had just set up?
Can anyone suggest a good link to show me a check list of things I should
be looking for?

Many Thanks,

First thing first, do you have wireless card/usb dongle on your PC? Have you installed the driver for the card/usb dongle?

Thanks Melayu for the reply.

I have in fact found the source of the problem.
I was looking for the old router.
When I did a search for all routers I was able to locate
the new one.

I have yet to set up my firewall etc - I'm sure there are
plenty of howtos on this site for doing that.

Again - Many Thanks,
Joe Frank.
