      Wireless Problems

      I am becoming very frustrated. My Sky connection works just fine if I'm wired into the router but I cannot connect wireless devices. I am trying to connect a Nabaztag, a linksys wireless camera and a plain old Belkin 54G dongle.
      The router is visible to the devices, I've double checked the WPA setting, I've changed to WEP and even to unencrypted. I've reset the router and all the devices are within 1m of the router as I try to get them working.
      All of these devices worked perfectly well the week before my ISP changed and I was forced to switch my linksys router for the SKY box.
      I have contacted SKY tech support and their line is that because the devices can see the SSID then the router is working and I need to contact the device supplier. It seems highly improbable to me that three devices should concurrently fail within one week.
      Any suggestions?

      Re: Wireless Problems

      change your sky router back to the old linksys. I was used to my ZyXEL router and have yet to find a better one. the sky router is definitely not the one.
      Your next question would be how? there are tons of that info on this forum but if you get stuck just ask here.

      I agree with ervidel. Go back to the working setup! For the same reasons I use a Netgear DM111P modem instead of the supplied sky thing.

      Thanks for the advice, I have asked SKY for the login settings so I can try the other box but they won't give me them claiming I have to use their box.
