- It sounds as if you have a wireless router (as do I) with Talk Talk, and it is connected to your PC with an ethernet cable. What is the make of the router?
2.Unless you have disabled the wireless on the router it should still be issuing a wireless signal.
- Some routers (like ny new Belkin) come with wireless protection already installed - nowadays WPA-PSK and a secure password given to you. Others are such that you create a secure password yourself.
- The router settings can be accessed by putting the address(with no prefix) in the IE address bar (Belkin is 192.168.2.1)
The wireless safety on the left brings up the settings (other routers nay be different.
I suggest you look at the router manual on line by googling the model No to see how to do this with yours
I hope you are not inadvertantly sending out a non proteced signal. To check, your laptop , aif you disconnect the LAN cable, should tell you if it "sees" a wireless source nearby - usually this is on the right bottom toolbar.If needed you cold reset the router to factory settigs and create a wireless securiy password
