    I recently set up a wireless network and have two PCs and one laptop all
    working fine. But I now want to add a fourth laptop and for some reason it
    cannot see or be seen on the network. It access the internet fine, via the
    Belkin wireless router.

    Can anyone suggest a course of action I can take (other than scouring help
    sites like this, which I am doing).

  2. Without any details of how you've set up the network, it's hard to say
    what's wrong.

    Make sure that a firewall isn't blocking access on the fourth laptop.

    Check your WEP or WAP settings. The 802.1x seems to be enabled by default,
    you might try turning that off.
