Wireless setup

I have Virgin broadband, with a cable modem, which works well with my Compaq PC, running Windows XP.

I have recently installed a D-Link wireless router and a Netgear wireless adaptor (both supplied by Virgin). These are talking to each other - a pop-up on the screen confirms this and says that the signal strength is excellent.

When I disconnect the final hard link between the router and the PC, however, I can no longer access the internet. I suspect that this is simply because my browsers are not set up for wireless. I usually use Firefox, and sometimes Opera and IE. any hints on this please?

The fact that you have an excellent signal doesn't necessarily mean that you have "Connected" (as in "Logged In") to the wireless network.

You need to scan for "Available Wireless Networks", select the one whose SSID (network name) matches that of your router and select the option to "Connect" to it. If WEP or WPA encryption has been enabled, you'll be prompted to enter the relevant key and should then "Connect" and have internet access.

You should configure the wireless router. Then you need to scan for available wireless networks. In wireless network settings, enter the network name (SSID) and the network key if wep/wpa is enabled.
