Your very first step is to Google and find a website that can tell you
how to set up a wireless access point and resolve connectivity problems.
You can also find a number of excellent books to read, also devoted to
wireless access. Google is your friend. I think those other websites and
other books can offer you a lot of help if you will have the patience to
read them and work through the advice they offer.
Another friend is researching old mailing list emails. I don't delete my
old emails. They are much too valuable. I save them and then search my
email folders when a problem hits to see who had my issue. Someone,
somewhere, had the same issue and dealt with it effectively.
