      Wireless Network Set Up

      My daughter has just bought this laptop & been connected to Sky today for the first time. I have plugged everything in & she's connected through the cables.
      She wants her connection to be wireless though so she can take her laptop into her room. I have looked at the Sky booklet but none of us have a clue where to start, I'm not sure whether she has to go into the router settings or whatever. Are there easy to follow instructions that someone could direct me to please.

      I wouldn't worry to much about the router settings for the moment, in fact it is often easier to do the initial connection with the router's wireless security disabled. Look in the laptop manual and find out if there is a switch key for turning the wireless on. If there is, switch on and it should detect the router.
