You say it is connected, but to what? Could you be picking up the neighbors WAP?
I'm hooking up a network for someone, while I know a fair amoout about computers to work things out, I am still new to networking. THe thing is, this person has his HOME PC running on a USB WIRELESS (2wire/sbc) because the closet wall jack is upstairs.
Also, he wants his laptop to have internet access at home, so he can take it to work and home. If I am correct, he needs a router right? He has the DSL modem, and when I installed the PC/wifi card in his laptop it connected, but it says there is limited or no connect. Generally speaking, its as if two computers are trying to get connect to one DSL modem, therefore I need a router?
THanks for the help and clarification
