Hi all you fellow Samsungers. Got my netbook yesterday (in black) it looks the biz. Loaded it with office 2007 all ok. But how do I get it to connect to my wireless internet? I have a desktop with BT voyager modem set up for wireless and that works fine. Do I need to buy anything extra to get my netbook to connect to the wifi – help! Many thanks.
That’s just a straight old fashioned modem isn’t it, ie it’s a USB cable into your PC and you have to connect to the net? In which case I guess you don’t have a Wireless Access point.
If that is the case then the simplest thing for you to do is investigate the BT Home Hub (your ISP is BT right?). Give BT a shout and they will tell you what they can offer.
The alternative is to purchase your own wireless access point, not something I can advise on as I use the one my ISP supplied me! It could be a bit tricky to setup – in my experience if you are not too sure what is needed then stick to what your ISP can supply because they will provide you with support too.
Jez it looks like there is a version of the BT Voyager that is wireless capable.
cen6cw, can you confirm what version you have? Is your desktop currently connected using wiress, wired (ethernet) or USB?
Hi, I have the BT voyager 2100 model modem wireless and the 1050 wireless adapter which I plug into the usb socket on my dell desktop.
Cool, in that case you should be able to hook up your NC10 with no extra hardware. I’m prob not the best to advice on how though lol!
Agreed as long as you know the password to your wireless (assuming you have it secured) you shouldn’t have any problems.
You won’t need any additional hardware.
Have a look on the internet for “connecting to wireless network”.
Hope that helps.
If you have your Wifi AP name on the router being broadcast, just turn on wifi on the Sammy, then double click the Windows Wifi icon in the task tray and hit refresh on the Wifi applet that opens up and select your Wifi network.
As donka says, but if you have changed your wifi as not to Broadcast SSD then you will need to change that option from your other pc via the web browser, but the chances are its enabled
