My perants recently purchased a new Netcomm  NB6Plus4W wireless router modem. This product works great for PSP's, Ipods and the laptop I am using to type this. The only problem is it will not connect to a desktop in a study, not ten meters away from the router itself. The destop has a Netcomm NP545 wireless adapter plugged into it and is running all drivers and software sucessufully, but will not connect to the network. The adapter can locate the router through either the Netcomm software or using windows, but in no instance will it connect. Any advice for a networking newbie?

What type of encryption are you using on the router? Do you have the latest drivers for your Netcomm device?

Can you connect if you turn encryption off (temporarily) on the router?

The first basic test is to turn encryption off and test if it will connect. I suggest you read the manual for some advice.
