    Default Connecting two laptops via wifi

    hi,

    I have just switched to BSNL. The technician from BSNL was able to connect one of my laptops via wifi. But my other laptop is unable to connect to wifi.
    I am facing the same problem with my cell phone. The other devices ( other than the primary connection) are able to detect wireless but unable to connect.
    What is the problem i dont understand...

    Amit

    please indicate the OS on the said laptop that could not be connected. also the message that flags up on trial.
    I had come across this case , using vista OS.
    and the message that came up was searched across Google and it lead to a file to be downloaded and included in the OS, after that we are able to connect.

    Mention the wifi router model/make/number.

    The prescription in Post No 2 will help.
    PPPoE mode : ( ignore if already done )
    Ensure your Userid/PW stored/entered in WAN page "bridged" unchecked )
    system should connect automatically when switched on .

    You can add Enable UpnP box (if seen in lan page)

    In continuation of my earlier post on this laptop issue, if the OS is vista, this is the solution that worked for us
    this additional file to be implemented in VISTA operated laptops and once rebooted, the wifi access is available.
    Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers
