Now, I'm not technical by any means.
I have added the new laptop's mac address into our router settings and saved presumably. However it fails to connect to the
network. It sees it and the strength is fine. However I want to double check some things. It's a dlink G604T wireless router,
(please note, when I untick "enable access list" so it's completely unsecure, the new laptop still won't connect), I'd like to know
the order that I do things, once I've added the mac address, I click the green tick to apply, how do I reboot the router to effect the new
settings? I've tried pulling the cord for sixty seconds, but to no avail, and I restart the new laptop at the same time.
Is there another setting in the router menu that is a final save and reboot? It's driving me nuts.
It's just a cheap lenovo that work repo'd, it's wireless works fine at my girlfriend's unsecured network so I know that it works at least.
I just want to leave it in the lounge for guests to use. It's too far to run a cable as well.
It does have some software for the wireless "broadcom wireless utility" which controls a few things, but I don't know that much
about computers to dabble in there without instruction.
So is it me not setting up the router properly?
The laptop disliking our router? (connects fine through ethernet cable)
Any help would be tops.
