Please, I'm not being able to stablish a home wireless connection to the internet, and so I'm asking for help on that. Sorry for my strange english.
I recently purchased a new (although already used) small notebook iPlug Intelbras based on Atom and with wireless feature, which is what I was looking for in order to simultaneously connect two or more computers to thne internet, in what I was having trouble with wired connection, added to being impossible to lead a wire to one room I need to.
As I was already connecting via a wired speedtouch 510 v4 modem, I purchased a wireless Siemens Gigaset SE361 WLAN router only, pluged it to the modem and there to the notebook and made all the configs as explained in the guide and the manual, but something must be still wrong, or missing, for the thing does not work.
What happens is that the router is being able to connect to my ISP, as the browser config page for status tells it is connected to the internet and also the online led is on. Either pluged or unpluged to the ethernet inlet of the router, the notebook remains with the led and tray icon indicators of wireless connection off. The wireless connection is active, but gets nothing from the router antenna. Repairing it does not change this. But also the ipconfig commnand informed that the wireless media is disconnected. That because I was trying to stablish a home network for it could possibly be what is missing, even doubting a network is needed to connect only one machine (the notebook) to the router. This way, I don't know if the problem is with the router or the notebook settings, or what.
Thus, what I need is, while having only the notebook and the modem/router, both to set up the modem/router and then connect to them wirelessly.
I hope you can help me, so I thank you very much.
