I presently have 2 desktops. One is connected via wireless Netgear adapter. I have the network secured with WPA2. It works fine. The problem is I'm trying to connect my laptop with a compatible (same family) 108 Mbps wireless pc card. I can connect to my neighbor's unsecured network which is across the street and about 400 feet away with a weak signal yet downloads are quick. The laptop is about 4 feet from my router. I finally got it to briefly connect to my secured network and then it apparently lost the connection. I can't get beyond google's home page. Netgear says it's connected but something it preventing the connection.The firewall in the laptop is disabled.
If I type ipconfig, I get:
IP address 192.168.1.4
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.1
