I have successfully set up a wireless router and now my new laptop can access the internet fine, which is great.

My only problem now is that my PC will not connect to the internet. Each time I click on connect it defaults to the old internet connection which was accessed via a speed touch modem. Obviously there is no modem attacvhed now so it cant connect as it used to.

I can normally figure these things out but I am really confused as to why my new laptop can access the net ok but now my PC cant.

I still need to access the net on my PC but just need to know how to go about doing this. I have tried various things but I am unsure if I need to contact my ISP or the manufacturer of the router or just set something up differently on my PC

Can anyone help/advise?

Thanks in advance

if you right click explorer icon (not the shortcut one)

and select properties

then select connections

you want to tick the box (well the radio button) that says never dial a connection
