I've recently had a new Bright Box router from EE, and have managed to successfully connect wirelessly on all of my devices, apart from my Desktop PC.
My Desktop PC is running Windows XP and my Wireless Adapter is an Inventel Wireless Magic Adapter (that was provided by Wanadoo a long time ago)
- I am able to connect using an Ethernet Cable
- I have confirmed this is not out of reach by moving my PC right next to the router
It does not show up in the list of Available Wireless Networks. Although I can see other routers, and used to be able to connect to my old router without issue.
Any ideas? I'm wondering if my adapter is not compatible with the brightbox for some reason. Might just purchase a new one as I've seen one for only £8.99 (TP-LINK TL-WN821N USB Adapter)
I have seen some Wireless issues that are only solved by :-
* Turn router off and find out best channel number using something like inssider
* Turn router back on. Connect to the router via Ethernet, set channel to one of 1, 6, 11 determined at above step.
* Change mode to b/g.
