I have a pc and a wireless router connected to a 2wire router. The pc connects just fine. My laptop connects to the wireless router. When I connect the laptop direct to the 2wire it doesn't connect. I have turned off the wlan switch on the laptop and turned off the wireless router to see if that makes a difference. When we have traveled with the laptop, it seems to connect to wired internet in hotel rooms just fine. If the wlan switch and the wireless router are both off here, shouldn't the laptop connect with my 2wire right away? Don't know if I have explained this very well, but thanks for reading.
