    I have a Toshiba laptop satellite 5205-S503 and have installed a Toshiba WI-FI card. My broadband router is a D-Link 614+. I can't not get the laptop to see the router, although it does seem to know the desktop computer name. I'm kinda new at this WI-FI game. Toshiba wasn't much help although they did teach me how to turn on the laptop WI-FI switch.

    Anybody got an idea of what I need to do to go wireless?

    Thanks

    The router is new. I have it wired to my desktop but have not yet been successful with WI-FI. I am running Windows XP.
    Thanks for your questions.

    Moving to networking, better minds there.
    You have half the battle done if it's working with the desktop.

    With my limited experience with wi fi, very limited, I have found that winxp consistantly installs a network bridge protocol. Once I removed the bridge the connection worked fine.
