Have problem setting up internet connection from new laptop using built in Intel (R) PRO/Wireless 2200 BG Network connection to Belkin Router F5D7630. Already have PC and Laptop successfully connected. Can anyone advise how to connect 2nd Laptop? Have tried Belkin on-line help and telephone help-line to no avail!!

Have you got WEP or WPA security setup?

How did you connect up your PC and 1st laptop? By yourself or someone else?

What's the make of your new laptop?

Here's a guide how to set up your router.

It is WPA connection
Started off myself then enlisted help
New laptop is Acer

I should have mentioned the PC and 1st. laptop have been connected and working flawlessly for over 12 months!

When you first fired up the ACER, did it find your network and asking for a WPA key?

yes we put in what we thought was the correct network key - it was 25 numbers/letters long

Type (I think) in your browser and check if it's the correct WPA key not your access password.
