    Hello Mike
    When I use the phone connection the computer opens web pages as normal but when I change to the wireless connection a message appears cannot find server.
    The status of the wireless network is fine showing that it is connected and the signal is 100%

How do i connect another pc to this one?i have an irish eircom wireless router....


You really didn't tell us enough to help, but I can offer suggestions:
If both computers have wireless adapters, all you have to do is to to the networking menu item (varies depending on the operating system which you failed to mention) and make sure you are on the same workgroup on both machines. You should then be able to see each other. You will, however, need to go into Windows Explorer and right-click on the folders you wish to share and enable sharing.
If you don't have wireless capability on the computers, they will have to be connected to the router with cable.
The whole subject of networking is really too large to address here. Guess I need to write a tip on it.

Internet explorer won't open


when it says connected it means to the router, open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and tick never dial a connection, or if it's already greyed out it's ok.

Assuming you have run the wireless network connection wizard first to set up the connection, if not it's in network connections and select new wireless connection or set up a wireless network.

Cannot connect to internet via Actiontec M1000 (Qwest)


open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router, other than that you need to check the routers settings, like the password /username for your ISP connection and assuming you originally set it up using an RJ45 lan cable (supplied) before using the wireless.

How can i unlock my router?


Firstly... avoid showing your SSID (eircom-123456789) here, as the WEP key can be reverse engineered from the SSID.

To change your SSID, connect your router to your PC with an ethernet cable, go to your web browser (Intenet Explorer, Forefox, etc) and type 192.168.1.254, and press return.

This will open the control panel for the router.
Select 'EXPERT MODE' from the menu on the right, and accept the warning prompt. Then click on 'CONNECTION' and the 'WIRELESS' on the menu on the right.

In the main window you can then change the SSID for your network.

You can also change some of the other options in this window such as enabling closed mode, change security protocol, password, etc.
