Have you set your computer settings to allow wireless connection?

I assume they've given you the password n all that?

you need to open internet explorer and type in the router address

its nearly always 192.168.1.1

Log into the router, and there will be an option to enable wireless router.

Hope this helps

Have a look at this link http://www.netopia.com/support/intl/.../IEWG_110.html

Probably should change from the default WEP encryption to the WPA-PSK encryption. When I got Eircom in they were giving out routers with default encryption keys.
