Hello all, i have been trying to get my wireless network working for 2 days now but with no luck. Here is my problem,

I have a desktop PC linked to a wireless router (linked with wires) and this router sends wireless to my laptop in my other room. The internet works fine on my desktop PC but it does not work on my laptop. I have tried a lot of settings such as no security but no luck. When i try to connect i enter in the WEP key and click connect, it then says it cannot connect, thus i have no internet. I have looked for hours on the internet but no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Help if you said what router it was-try checking the broadcast settings on the browser page

Sorry, the router is a "D-Link DSL-G604T" and the broadcast settings are set to "full". Any more ideas?

First, what is the wireless card you're using w/ the laptop. If it's integrated, try inserting the installation CD for the router into the computer and re-installing, and try to match the options best w/ you're laptop.

This may sound stupid but...

You are actually trying to connect to your own wireless network, right?

You are correct there. He's having problems w/ his laptop connecting to his router Wirelessly.

No, my point was to ask him to make sure that he's not trying to connect to a network that isn't his.
