      Bewildered Needs Help



      I have recently signed up for Sky Broadband at the mid-level. I have a PC with XP and recently acquired a wireless enabled laptop. I have set up the PC broadband connection without a problem.

      However, I haven't a clue how to go about then connecting the laptop wirelessly. I know my modem is capable and my laptop is capable.

      Do I need to disconnect my PC from the modem and reattach to the laptop?

      Sorry to be so dense but I haven't owned anything wireless before and don't understand the technology.

      If someone would be so kind as to advise - in simple terminology - what I should be doing I will be so grateful.

      Thank you.

      I have had a look at your suggestion Postman Pat and presume this is done from my PC not the laptop?
