Hi,
I am unable to connect my new wireless lappy to my local (Talk Talk broadband) connection I use for my desktop.
Is Vista wireless compatible with Talk Talk broadband? Doesn't seem to be aware of that connection...

Also where do I obtain key 'security key or passphrase'

Im sure this is obvious but I need help as Im no good at this

thanks:D

How does your desktop connect, are you using a router or modem or what. We need more information to be able to help you.

What operating system does the desktop use and what security programs do you have installed on both your machines, it could be the firewall blocking things or it could be something else.

Post back with as much information as you can get about your machines and the way you connect to the internet and someone should be able to help you. ;)

Hi Joan,
Desktop connects via a sagem modem, to Talk Talk broadband. Its Windows XP

Both machines have AVG and Zonealarm security
thanks

I don't know much about networking but you say the desktop connects via a sagem modem so by the sound of things it will not allow a wireless connection from your laptop. You would also have to make sure that Zonealarm allows your connection through it.

Maybe someone with more knowledge than me will be able to help you while I try and find some information for you about it, I do know that if you want to be able to share between the two systems it's not so easy having Vista in the mix. ;)
