      Network Key

      Can any one please help me.
      I have the Sky router up and running, using a cable supplied, and I have no problems.
      But when I try to use my wireless card thats when I have a problem, the card is about 4 years old, it's a Belkin it can be used on the A B and G, so theres no problem there.
      It's when Iam asked for the network key that I get the problem.
      Sky has given me an 8 letter key, but Belkin will only let me put in 5 or 10.
      and 13 and 25 network keys.
      So do any of you know how to get over this, as I did not have a problem with my old router which was a Netgear also.

      You may need to change the encryption type?

      Re: Network Key

      Just out of interest, What Belkin card was it, So that we know for future reference that, That device doesnt work with the Sky Router with the default Wireless settings.
