Trying to configure my 3G wireless router with Virgin E169

by rjburke1 / May 16, 2009 4:50 PM PDT

I am having trouble with my wireless. My Acer laptop connects to my Netcomm N3G Wireless Router but there is no internet connection but i have inserted the Prepaid Virgin E169 to the router. I have tried configuring it but it keeps saying that i am not an administrator but i am the owner of the laptop. Has anyone had the same problem and do you know how to fixit apart from attaching a hammer to it? I am not very computer literate so simple terms would be good. The lady at optus who sold it to me said all i had to do was plug it in. If only it was that easy.
