    Lads, have just moved house for a few months to a place with existing wireless connection. Have brought my computer over but struggling to connect to the wireless connection. Any suggestions why not besides technological ignorance?

    I think the wireless is fine as I am connecting now with it on my iPod touch. Think it us computer related. Was hoping a window would just pop up asking me to connect to the wireless connection. Alas it doesn't seem to even look for it.

    Is there a wireless network switch you need to turn on?

    If you are on Windows (booo!) then you can go Start>Connect to>Wireless connection

    and you should be sweet.

    Cheers. Then it says windows can't find any networks. Where would this switch you talk of be?

    If it's a laptop it may be on the side near the front

    If your laptop usually connects to the LAN over your ethernet port, it may be over-riding any wireless connection.

    And even if the switch is on, turn it off then back on and you might have to select (on screen) what you want to be on (eg wireless or Bluetooth or both).
