    windows vista but as soon as I go to internet it says offline. Also the
    manual tells you to turn off security but how do you do that in windows vista

  3. Hi
    Wireless Routers and Wireless cards have No universal way to install and
    manage the setting, it depends on the way the manufacturer implemented the
    technology.
    As a result if the installation did not start to work correctly with the
    defaults it is very hard to give specific instructions unless someone has
    the exact system as yours.

    The solution is to educate yourself in general about Entry Level Wireless
    issues, and read the manuals of your specific hardware. Combine to two
    should enable you to resolve the issues.

    May be this can help to provide the general education.
