I have recently changed ISPs from Wanadoo.fr to Neuf.r and have a combined unlimited broadband and telephone contract. My Packard Bell Easynote laptop previously connected wirelessly to my main PC without problems when my old modem (a Netgear DG834GT) was in use. However, since I installed the Neuf.fr modem, I have been unable to get a wireless connection despite going through the hoops several times. The Easynote says it cannot congfigure. Can anyone give any advice as to what I might do here?

I think you need a router to be able to connect another PC wirelessly to your internet. Did your new ISP give you a router or a modem? If they gave you a modem, try using the Netgrear router to connect to your new ISP and it should let you do what you did before. You might need to change some settings though. Mr. Green

If you have been given a modem by your ISP, and you are using Windows XP, it is quite straight forward to set up an Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi connection between the two computers, and set up Internet Connection Sharing to enable the remote PC to connect to the internet. That said, a router is an easier and more flexible option. If you still have the Netgear router, it should just be a case of reconfiguring it to get it to work with your new ISP.
