I bought a Sony Vaio yesterday which has an inbuilt wireless modem.
I have a Speedtouch 500 router, and a USB Speedtouch 120 adapter.
My old laptop connected up fine, but this one doesn't.
PLEASE NOTE: I'm not very familiar with the computer lingo but I really need someone to walk me through this slowly.
I've disabled my firewall and tried but it still wont connect.
The problem is that it's supposed to automatically recognise the IP but it doesn't. It's just stuck there with the message:
"Renewing IP Address"
I've even tried using my USB adapter instead of the inbuilt wireless modem but it still doesn't work.
Do I need to disable my inbuilt wireless? If so, how? :(
Please, if someone could be kind and patient enough to explain how I might go about connecting up, I would really sincerely appreciate that.
Thanks in advance
Also, check to make sure the security settings are correct. If it's requesting an "open" key and your router is set to "shared" it won't work. Go through all the settings on your old laptop and make sure they are the exact same on the new computer.
