Hi- I have a desktop hooked up to a speedstream 4200 modem (telstra) and a d-link dl-524 router. I have had to reboot my laptop and cannot reconnect it to the wireless router.
I have also got a son using ethernet for x-box 360.. can anyone give me the best setup to get this all working efficiently? Thanks

" I have a desktop hooked up to a speedstream 4200 modem (telstra) and a d-link dl-524 router."

????? Do you have the modem connected to the PC or to the router WAN port? The usual setup would be from Modem to Router then each client system connects to a LAN port ( Wired or wireless)

Why does the laptop not automatically re-connect wirelessly when rebooted? When you view available networks what shows? Are you running a secured wireless network and what level of encryption? WEP, WPA ?

I have the desktop connected to the modem and the wireless router connected to the modem for the laptop. The laptop was completely wiped and didnt have any settings to connect- I have fixed this and am now able to connect to the net.

Onto the next issue- what is the best way to set up with desktop (can't go wireless on this one) laptop (wireless) and x-box 360 (ethernet) with WEP encryption. Any help appreciated.
