Hey everyone. About a month ago I bought a router so my wife could get on the internet with her laptop. We also bought a printer that day, which happened to be wireless compatable. So we hooked the router up to the modem, and the PC is on the network with no problems. Even the wireless printer has been working fine, and it shows up as online in the network map (Network Magic came with the router).
The problem is that the laptop cannot connect to the network. It always shows up as offline in the network map too. Funny thing is, we can
get on the internet on the laptop. Even while surfing the net on it, it will show up as offline if I check the network map on the PC. I would normally just let it go, but we can't send anything to the printer from the laptop (the wife does her school stuff on it usually). It doesn't look like we are connecting to any other nearby networks on the laptop, but I am no expert so maybe that is how we can surf the net on it.
We installed Network Magic on both devices, and we went through disabling the firewall on the laptop and everything, but it still will not find the network to join. I've e-mailed Network Magic customer support, but the tips they have suggested have not helped. I'm hoping some computer savvy person around here can help me figure out what is going on.
