I see, so if i have woosh wireless & phone to main pc in the house and pc in garage connected to woosh also (with dlink router and adaptor, should i be able to connect laptop to woosh wireless with intel pro?
Not really sure what sense, it was installed on the second hand Toshiba Mecra M3 that i got.
or, more helpfully, you'll need to make sure the Tecra has the correct driver for the Intel card and that the wireless config matches your wireless access point (whether that's Woosh provided kit or your D-Link router isn't clear).
If you need + help, would be useful to know what OS is on the Tecra (Windows? which version?) and how the other 2 PCs and the D-Link router fit into the equation. Assuming probably Woosh-provided modem, wired to D-Link Wireless router, to which main PC is wired (?) and garage PC is wireless (using "adapter" mentioned)
Well the first bit of your answer is way above my head. It is Windows XP Professional. Yeah its woosh provided modem and gateway for phone which is on host pc in house and the dlink router that i already had, i just connected gateway (pc) cable to it and used wireless adaptor i already had for pc in garage, i dont remember having to configure dlink router at all, just plugged it in (like someone told me to) and it sorted the pc in garage out.
I thought it was just a matter of using ip address and other stuff to connect to woosh.
A home router would normally be configured to serve IP addresses to connecting clients.Once the router is set up to communicate with the ISP device, the wired clients need nothing more than to have their network cards set to "obtain DHCP, DNS automatically" which is Windows default setting; wireless clients normally need to also match the wireless access point (SSID) and encryption values (type and password/passkey)...unless there is only one AP in range and it has no encryption (not usually a good idea unless you live in the middle of a field), in which case default settings on Windows might "just work"
You asked what an Intel 2095 abg was; I was simply pointing out you need more than just the network card to allow the wireless connectivity you wanted.
Hope that explains what I said a bit more clearly !
And the above is just a very simple representation (before anyone posts up their multi-site, multi-server, multi-client, virtualized "home" setup )...and yes the traffic will be going the other way too...
Hi, i didn't get to thank you for your reply(s), which would have been helpful i'm sure, but I ran out of patience and got an it person from local paper to sort. He, with the assistance of my isp provider turned of the dhcp in wireless router and changed security to wpa-psk and passsword.
