i am hooking up a linksys wireless router w/access point to my desktop and tablet. i followed the instructions on the cd and have my desktop successfully hooked up to the router and internet going (i have dsl). now i'm trying to get my tablet hooked up. i was confused as the cd instructions said to hook up an ethernet cablet to the pc(tablet) and router but i'm wanting wireless. i searched thru papers trying to find an answer and the user guide and ended up calling linksys. george was not much help except to say that i don't need to hook up the ethernet cable if i'm doing wireless. but from there on he couldn't tell me what to do to get my tablet to communicate with the router. i hit the wifi button and my icon below says i'm hooked up to my connection to "jolynn" which i named my network and the signal is excellent but i can't get to internet. can anyone help me with what i should be doing? such as where do i imput any info from my desk top set up, etc etc. and do i just hit the wifi button when i want to connect?? i can follow directions but sometimes the directions are lacking for first timers.
i would appreciate any help you can give.
