Connecting to Internet
I just received my HP laptop with wireless internet, yet I cannot connect to
the internet. I am using a linksys wrt54g version 2 router. I already have
a number of computers already connected wirelessly to this router with no
issues. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong with this new computer.
This is my first computer with Vista, so I'm a bit rusty with the set up.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

RE: Connecting to Internet
Go to the start ORB, then "connect to".
Vista should have found your wireless Network.
Enter your Security Key, and away you go.

Re: Connecting to Internet
Hi,

Make sure the laptop's wireless switch is set to "on".
