    For the last 5weeks have been trying to setup a broadband wireless
    connection, and about to
    give up and stay on dialup.
    XPHome SP2/DG834G Router Modem, please bear in mind I am not computer
    literate.

    Is it possible to make a complete fresh start, and run through the setup
    again, would this
    be recommended. Many thanks for any assistant given.

    John,

    Here are a few websites with useful tutorials:
    http://www.cablesense.com/
    http://www.homenethelp.com/
    http://www.practicallynetworked.com/
    http://www.wown.com/

    If you can post some description of exactly what problem you're experiencing,
    someone here can surely help you diagnose it.

    You could start by providing ipconfig information for your computer.
    Start - Run - "cmd". Type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" into the command
    window - Open c:\ipconfig.txt in Notepad, copy and paste entire contents into
    your next post.

    You should divide it into two steps..

    First establish working Broadband connection between the Modem Router and
    one Wired computer.

    Log to this page it has a lot of links to instructions to Windows Network
    Settings, and Sharing: http://www.ezlan.net/Installing.html

    Once it works take care of the Wireless.

    John,

    1) Hit the Start button in your taskbar.
    2) Hit Run.
    3) Type "cmd" (less the "").
    4) Hit the Enter key.
    5) This will open a command window. Into the command window, type "ipconfig
    /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" (again less the ""), and hit Enter.
    6) Start Notepad.
    7) Open C:\ipconfig.txt.
    8) Select all text (Ctrl - A).
    9) Copy selected text (Ctrl - C).
    10) Migrate to this window, and Reply to this post.

    John,

    No. You gain nothing by staying on dialup. Millions of folks have moved to
    broadband, with equipment like yours. We can help you, and we can walk you thru
    fixing your problems, if you'll work with us.

    Looking at what you provided before, I'm betting you typed "ipconfig" not
    "ipconfig /all". Try again.
    1) Hit the Start button in your taskbar.
    2) Hit Run.
    3) Type "cmd" (less the "").
    4) Hit the Enter key.
    5) This will open a command window. Into the command window, type
    "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" (again less the ""), and hit Enter.
    6) Start Notepad.
    7) Open C:\ipconfig.txt.
    8) Select all text (Ctrl - A).
    9) Copy selected text (Ctrl - C).
    10) Migrate to this window, and Reply to this post.
    11) Paste into your reply (Ctrl - V).

    John,

    You can do this a couple ways (probably more):
    1) Start Notepad. Do File - Open - find the Local Disk (C:) - Find
    ipconfig.txt - double click on ipconfig.txt.
    2) Start Windows Explorer (NOT Internet Explorer!) - Find Local Disk (C:) -
    Find ipconfig.txt - double click on ipconfig.txt.
