      Newbie needs help or will have to shoot his PC

      hello all.
      Help.Please.Help Me.
      I have had Sky BB for about 6 months but whilst i can connect using the works laptop if i bring it home, i cannot connect (either wired or wireless) via my PC.
      Well, i tell a lie - i once got a page to appear, but everything froze and i had to shut down again.
      I am using a Belkin Wireless G+ USB Adapter and running Windows XP

      The survival of my PC depends on your help!

      It is always better to connect using wires first, so forget about wireless for the moment. If you have an adapter plugged in to the PC, remove it.

      I am assuming that you have a network card in your PC and you have used the yellow cable to connect it to one of the ports on the router. Click this link - http://192.168.0.1/start.htm If you do see the login panel, post back. If you don't, do the following.

      First check that your network card is operating properly by opening the Device Manager and check that there are no ? or ! next to any of the entries. If there is nothing, expand the Network Adapters section and check that your network card is shown and recognised. If that is OK close up the Device Manager.

      Now go to the Control Panel and open the icon for Network Connections. You should see an entry for High Speed LAN. Open this and select the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) entry and click the Properties button. Select the option for 'Obtain an IP address automatically'. Click apply, ok and close down the Network connections pane. Reboot your PC.

      Now go to the router and and unplug it, leave it unplugged for a minute, then plug it in again. Allow it to start again and when all the lights are lit, click the above link again and see if you can now access the router.
