Hi George,

How far away from the router is the laptop? Also, check these router settings:

Does the router have anything like MAC address filtering or encryption set? Try disabling it.

Is the router set to broadcast its (E)SSID? Make sure it is.

Make sure it is set to obtain the IP address automaticly (DHCP is enabled).

When you get a limited connection, try repairing the connection by right clicking on the wireless icon in the system tray and selecting Repair.

It sounds like you have the broadband modem connected to one of the LAN/Network ports of the router, not the WAN/Internet port of the router. Please do this:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

FWIW, the only thing I ever configure on a wireless link is encryption. SSID hiding, MAC filtering, etc., only make it harder for you to use your network.
