Setting up my new CnMBook
« on: March 23, 2009, 03:54:06 PM »
Will some kind person out there please tell me how I can set up my computer to connect wirelessly to the Internet?  Weeks ago I wrote to the support people at cnmlifestyle but they have not replied. Are they usually slow in replying? The staff at my ISP (Tiscali) who are usually most helpful have unfortunately not been trained to deal with Linux.

A few questions will help us to help you:

What model of wireless router are you using ?
What security settings are you using ? WEP ? WPA ? MAC filtering ?
Do you have any other equipment connected wirelessly at the moment ? Does it work OK ?
What version of the Minibook operating system are you using ? (Version 7.0 sorts out a lot of wireless problems).
Have you installed any patches from the CnM website ?

Many thanks for your offer of help, and sorry to be so long getting back to you. I had a problem with my password -  now sorted. Also the support people have now been in touch and I am now connected. Thanks again.
Best wishes
