For over a year I have had my two desktops (one upstairs/one downstairs) successfully sharing an internet connection using Gigafast Homeplug Powerline Networking. I now have a laptop computer and would rather use a wireless internet connection for it. The laptop has a wireless network card installed. I have a Asoka PL9540 WAP (Pluglink Wireless Access Point) - user guide:
formatting linklaptop "sees" the PL9540 WAP internet connection - but does not connect. The main computer with the broadband connection does not see the WAP. Does the main computer also have to have a wireless card - even though the WAP is plugged into the wiring with the other homeplug adapters?
