    slow internet connection

    I'm not sure if this is in the right category, but, what the heck...

    Anyway, after weeks of debating how I was going to run some cabling up four floors of my house , I decided to go wireless and ordered a Sitecom 11b USB adapter for the downstairs computer. Everything goes well... until I connect to the internet (on the computer with the adapter). Firstly, when I load up IE, it comes up saying my homepage is unavailable. It doesnt try and connect to my (local) broadband modem or anything like it did before. I presume it is trying to connect to my wireless adapter as it is listed under high speed internet (maybe??? )

    I can, though connect if I choose Start > Connect To > My Dialup Broadband Connection. Everything seems to be working well, until... I try to load TZ (or anything else) up. The connection seems pathetically slow for a 512mbs connection.

    Anyone have any idease as to how I can solve either of these problems?

    **edit**
    p.s my brodband is still my default connection

    What connection gradient is it giving? Excellent/good/poor???

    Have you got it configured correctly? Are you using WEP or WAP? Is it configured correctly?

    Are you able to transfer files on your LAN between PCs?

    nah. the problem is my local (non-wireless) connection. ive had a play around with it, and the internet is only slow when i have the wireless thing plugged in. and thats when it tries to connect to the wireless thing on IE instead of my router.

    I'll give you an ASCII representation of my network configuration:

    Main PC > 512k Broadband Modem > Internet Provider
    Main PC > Wireless USB Adapter > Wireless Access Point > Rest of Network

    Its only when my Wireless adapter is plugged in that my broadband connection is adversly affected.
