Hi . I am certainly not a geek in fact I am not knowledgeable at all about this amazing technology that we have. Recently I purchased an XT stick so I could get emails and do all the usual when away from home. All works well, but previously I linked at home through a Belkin G wirless modem to broadband, also succesasfully. This had been previously sold and installed by local
geeks on Wheels" team.
Now whenever I am home I cannot link through the Belkin. On my network comnnects page it lists
"Dial up TelecomData" as ok
"Wireless Network Connection 2" not connected, Firewalled
AND
"Local Area Connetion 2 Network cable unplugged"
I am preuming that the "Wireless network connection 2 not connected is the issue.
How do I set up so cabn use either?  defaulting to "wireless connection when I have not plugged in the XT stick?
many thanks
Raynaj

The two shouldn't interfere at all.

Are you running XP, Vista or Windows 7?

Some more info that may help you slueths ! My wife who sits with her computer about 2 metres away has no trouble with access via the belken unit. She however has never had the Telecom XT facility. On my computer both are listed on the network connetions page. In the Belken help it suggests making sure the "wirless switch is ON" I cannot find this so called switch anywhere.
thanks

Sometimes a laptop will have a button for wireless rather than a switch, or holding the Fn key plus what looks like a radio tower type icon. For me this is holding Fn and pressing F2 on my Asus Laptop.
