New guy here. I've got a Mini10 and am having a heck of a time with the wireless part of it. I can connect to some networks, but not all, and not even my own. I don't get it, I guess.
My kids got me a Belkin wireless router so I could surf out on the patio, and I set up the wireless network according to instructions. Here's the rub. I can connect to my neighbor's wireless pretty good and can surf, but I cannot get anyplace on my own network. My visitors come to my house and can connect to my network. My daughter even connects to it with her phone! But my dell won't connect to it.
It LOOKS like it's connected. When I mouseover the little bitty TV set in my system tray I get a small popup that says (Wireless network connection (name of network)
Speed 54.0 Mbps
Signal strength: Excellent
However, I can't go anyplace on the net and cannot check mail.
What am I doing wrong? As I said, I can connect to other networks, like my neighbor's and like in public areas and such. What's up?
Thanks in advance for any help on this.
