I have a HP laptop in my basement office. Since I already had Cat5 I have just used it to connect with my Linksys Wireless G. I had used wireless in the past down here and it worked fine. I would like to use the cable to connect this Vonage phone since the router is on the second floor. However, I get Wireless Connection not available error. I know there is a switch on the front of this laptop for wireless but the light does not come on when pressed. The router is set for B or G. Could it be that the internal wireless in this computer has failed - if so how does one check. Any ideas greatly appreciated. At this point I have no idea on how to proceed.
